Really nice win--broke 26 game win streak by Duke


Love watching this team get better as the season progresses. Willoughby looked like she was playing in pain again this game but she just gutted it out. She had some strong drives to the basket where she just bulled her way through contact. She was money from the foul line and played well despite being in foul trouble in the first half and having to sit for awhile. She finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Toussaint played more point today than I 've seen in the past and I think is showing more leadership there.
Martinsen played the best I have seen her play all year. Played good defense at times and had some steals. Showed she could do more on offense than stand in the corner and hoist up three pointers.

Jablonowski hit a quality three and played solid on both the defensive and offensive ends. She had 10 rebounds and 7 points. Jones had a quiet game but had couple nice buckets in the fourth quarter and made both of her free throws coming down the stretch.

UVA covered the three point shooters well and Duke only made four out of their 15 attempts. UVA was four for 19 not not a good day for them either. UVA shot 35% from the floor but made 15 of their 19 free throws many of them in the fourth quarter when they were fighting to keep the lead. Duke shot 40% from the floor and made 3 of their five free throw attempts.

UVA had 16 turnovers to Dukes 21. Still too many bad passes trying to force the ball into the middle of the zone.

Thought Tinsley (no points and only 1 assist in 23 minutes) and Caldwell (only 11 minutes of playing time) didn't have their best showings and Payne played very little.

Really encouraged by how much this team has improved since the season began and hope they continue to finish the season strong.
