Box Score

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The University of Virginia women's basketball team scored its first upset of the season with a 77-62 drubbing at No. 24/19 Florida State on Monday evening.

UVa improved to 16-5 overall and 5-2 in the ACC, while the Seminoles fell to 18-4 overall and 5-3 in the league.

With her first bucket of the second half, senior LaTonya Blye (Baltimore, Md.), this week's ACC Player of the Week, became the 22nd Cavalier in school history to net 1,000 career points. After 110 games, Blue now has 1,014 points.

"We were trying to keep them from getting into a rhythm," UVa head coach Debbie Ryan said of her strategy against the Seminoles. "They're a very good offensive team."

In the first half, FSU jumped out to a four-point lead, 6-2. UVa utilized an 11-3 run to go ahead by seven, 23-16, including back-to-back three pointers by Blue. The Cavaliers held a two-point edge at halftime, 29-27.

In the second half, the Cavaliers jumped out to an eight-point lead, 39-31. UVa continued to build upon its lead, using a 19-2 run to go ahead by as many as 19 points, 58-39.

"It was a feeding frenzy," Ryan said of the run. "We just had a bunch of kids who fed off of each other. That closed the door. We knew we just had to hang on."

Blue led the squad with a game-high 24 points. Freshman Takisha Granberry (Charlotte, N.C.) came off the bench for a career-high 15 points, while senior Jocelyn Logan-Friend (Cheverly, Md.) added 11 points.

FSU had three players in double figures, led by Ganiyat Adeduntan's 18 points.

Overall, Virginia out-rebounded Florida State, 47-30.

Virginia continues its ACC road swing with a stop at No. 25 NC State on Thursday, Feb. 3. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
