Box Score

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia women's basketball team recorded its last non-conference win with a 83-70 decision over Dartmouth on Sunday.

Virginia improved to 14-5 overall, while the Big Green fell to 5-8.

"I knew (Dartmouth) would be a tough opponent," said head Virginia head coach Debbie Ryan. "They are an intelligent team with good shooters."

In the first half, the teams were even until UVa went ahead by 10 points, 38-28 with 5:15 to go. The Cavaliers held just a five-point edge at haltime, 42-37.

"Our problem had nothing to do with offense," Ryan said. "We're a better team than the way we played defensively."

In the second half, Virginia pushed its lead back to double figures and never looked back. The Hoos led by as many as 17 points.

"I knew the first two minutes of the second half were going to be key," said Dartmouth head coach Chris Wielgus.

"We got a lot of energy from our younger (players) today," Ryan said. "They understood, stepped up and gave us what we needed."

Senior Jocelyn Logan-Friend (Cheverly, Md.) paced the Cavaliers with a career-high 24 points. Sophomore Brenna McGuire (Winchester, Mass.) added 12 points, all from long range, while senior Brandi Teamer (Joliet, Ill.) and sophomore Siedah Williams (Cleveland, Ohio) added 11 points each.

As a team, UVa was on track to rewrite the school record with a perfect 15-15 from the free throw line, but missed the very last attempt with 1:40 to go in the game to finish 15-of-16.

Two Dartmouth players netted double digits. Elise Morrison scored 27 points, while Jeannie Cullen added 21 points.

"We have a very balanced attack," Wielgus added. "(Virginia) shut us down in certain spots."

 

 

"I was excited to play an ACC team," Morrison said.

Overall, Virginia out-rebounded Dartmouth, 38-27.

Virginia hosts longtime intra-state rival Virginia Tech in the teams' first ACC contest at University Hall on Friday, Jan. 28. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. on the Regional Sports Network.
