Virginia Tops Clemson
|Kate Mooney scored 21 points for the Cavaliers|
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Kate Mooney scored 15 of her 21 points in the first half to lead No. 13 Virginia to a 72-55 win over No. 22 Clemson on Thursday night.
It was Virginia's first home victory against Clemson in three years, as the Cavaliers (16-5, 7-4 Atlantic Coast) bounced back from two lopsided losses to No. 14 Duke and No. 3 Old Dominion.
Clemson (16-6, 8-4), which had won six of seven from Virginia, fell 22 points behind when it missed 17 of 19 shots during a 21-4 Cavaliers run that spanned the halves.
Mooney, coming off back-to-back career-high performances of 20 and 22 points in wins over Georgia Tech and Florida State, had three of her team's six 3s in the first half, when Virginia took a 42-28 lead. She hit two of her 3s and scored nine points in a 13-4 run that closed the half.
The Lady Tigers, who two years ago ended Virginia's 61-game home winning streak, missed 12 of their last 14 shots in the first half, then went 0-for-5 with a turnover to start the second, letting Virginia take a 50-28 lead.
Amy Geren scored 16 points to lead Clemson, which shot 36 percent on 22-for-61 shooting.
Mimi McKinney had 16 points, DeMya Walker 14 and Erin Stoval 12 for Virginia.
