Good win though giving up a 13 point lead at halftime.....


Mone Jones had a breakout game, scoring 10 points in the first quarter alone. Willoughby had a career high 26 points and could have easily had 30 as she missed a couple of layups. Toussaint came on strong late and had a key steal that helped UVA seal the victory.

Team was up 13 at halftime and let Boston College back into the game. Boston had a freshman guard who UVA left free most of the game to shoot three pointers. Luckily she wasn't as good from the foul line.

Virgina was down two in regulation with less than a minute to go and looked like they were going to lose but were able to force overtime. They scored first in overtime and never gave the lead back to BC.

Gutsy win. Willoughby had one play towards the end of the game where she missed a contested shot, got her own rebound in a crowd, missed another tough shot , fought for another rebound and finally still heavily guarded put the layup in. Kid leaves it all out on the floor every game.

Team is beginning to play like a team on offense and saw more screening and movement tonight than I had seen in previous games. They switched their offense up during the game as Boston College adjusted. They played really good defense at times and then at other times had some terrible lapses allowing easy layups. Three point defense was suspect most of the night. They did tighten it up in the fourth quarter and in OT.
