Box Score

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia women's basketball team defeated Clemson, 68-49, on Sunday at University Hall.

The Cavaliers improved to 13-4 overall and 3-1 in ACC play, while the Lady Tigers fell to 7-8 overall and 1-2 in the league.

"We were sluggish in the first half," said UVa head coach Debbie Ryan. "We just couldn't get anything sustained."

In the first half, the Cavaliers opened with a 12-0 run to go ahead by eight, 14-6, but Clemson came back and went ahead by five, 25-20. The teams entered the locker room tied at 28-28.

In the second half, UVa went on a 19-2 run to break open the game. Virginia pushed its lead to as many as 22 points, 66-44 with 2:48 to go.

"It was an on-going lay-up drill (for Virginia)," Clemson head coach Jim Davis said of the second half. "I am terribly disappointed in our basketball team. We're very, very young, and we're not very good. We better grow up in a hurry, because it doesn't get any easier."

Senior Jocelyn-Logan Friend (Cheverly, Md.) paced UVa with 14 points on perfect shooting. She went 6-of-6 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line. Senior LaTonya Blue (Baltimore, Md.) was the only other Cavalier in double digits with 10 points. Senior Brandi Teamer (Joliet, Ill.), freshman Sharnee Zoll (Marlboro, N.J.), and sophomore Brenna McGuire (Winchester, Mass.) had nine points each. Zoll also added a career-high seven rebounds and six assists. She was named the Fox Sports Player of the Game.

"She does a great job running the floor," Davis said of Zoll.

"We knew we had to pick up our energy," Logan-Friend said of the team's adjustment in the second half.

Junior Tasha Phillips came off the bench to lead the Lady Tigers with 15 points. Junior Reggie Maddox added 10 points.

 

 

Overall, Virginia out-rebounded Clemson, 45-30.

The Cavaliers travel to No. 15/17 Maryland on Thursday, Jan. 20. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at the Comcast Center. WINA (1070 AM) will broadcast the game live on the radio and www.virginiasports.com.
