In the first half Virginia dominated as NC State only took the lead once, 12-10. Virginia held the Wolfpack scoreless for five minutes while going on a 8-0 run. UVa held a 10-point lead at the break, 26-16, lead by back-to-back three pointers by seniors LaTonya Blue and Brandi Teamer.
In the second half the Cavaliers pushed their lead to 16 points, 38-22 with 15:30 on the clock. During the last five minutes of play NC State went on a 17-6 run o retake the lead in the last minute of play for the win.
"We still had several chances to put the game away, and we just couldn't do it. That's uncharacteristic of this team."
Billie McDowell lead State with 17 points.
"We made fundamental mistakes at the end," said Blue "we let this one slip away."
