The Cavalier women's basketball team hits the road for the second straight time tomorrow night, traveling to Boston College. With a win, Virginia will earn a first round bye in next week's ACC Tournament.
The Wahoos enter tomorrow's match up at 8-4 in the conference, and are coming off a heart-breaking 78-70 loss at Duke on Sunday. Their only four conference losses have come to the top three teams in the ACC, and have been by an average of 8.5 points per game. They meet an Eagles squad that is 6-6 in the conference, in a three way tie for fifth. Boston College has an outside shot at earning a top four conference seeding with two wins and a Virginia loss.
Last season, these two teams met in Charlottesville, with Virginia sneaking out a 65-63 win. Sharnee Zoll and Monica Wright both scored in double figures, with Zoll scoring a game high 16 points. She'll look to add to her ACC record number of assists tomorrow night in Chestnut Hill.
