Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill.) added seven kills, and teammates Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz.) and Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas) each added six kills for the Cavaliers. Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz.) paved the way for Virginia's scoring by dishing out 25 of the Cavaliers 27 total assists, while adding three kills.
