It was the night that was meant to be at John Paul Jones Arena on Sunday evening. Virginia honored seniors Aisha Mohammed, Britnee Millner, Kristen London, and Lyndra Littles before the game overshadowing a virtual must win match-up with Boston College who entered the night with an identical 6-5 conference record to Virginia.
The emotions showed on the court. The Cavaliers started out strong, jumping out to a ten point lead in the first half. However, the Eagles did come back behind a 15 point first half from Carolyn Swords to take the lead by five, only to have momentum switch hands with an Ariana Moorer buzzer-beating three pointer to cut the lead to two at the half.
After the break, Virginia took the lead and never looked back. Monica Wright's 22 second half points put Boston College away and Virginia ended up with a 90-70 victory.
The Cavalier seniors combined for a total of 52 points in the game. 27 of those points came from Lyndra Littles. Aisha Mohammed finished with 10, Millner added six, and London contributed with nine.
Virginia wraps up it's regular season schedule on the road against Florida State and Georgia Tech. With the win the Cavaliers finish the season with a 15-2 home record.
