Virginia women's basketball came into Sunday's game with Virginia Tech reeling from a loss to Duke. It showed early in the first half. The Hokies jumped out to an early ten point lead, eventually growing to 15 points, but after a switch on the defensive side of the ball, Virginia took the lead and never looked back in a 69-61 win.
In the first half, Tech had a commanding 23-8 lead just over seven minutes into the game. However, after the Cavaliers switched their defensive look from man-to-man to a zone, they took control and took a three point lead into the break.
After the half, Virginia never looked back. They held the Hokies to just 34% shooting from the field, while knocking down 50% of their field goals in the second half.
Three players were in double-digits in Sunday's win. Lyndra Littles scored 23, with Monica Wright right behind her with 22 points. Aisha Mohammed scored 13 and was one board short of a double-double with nine rebounds.
Virginia looks to complete another season sweep on Thursday, as they travel to College Park to take on the Terps. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
