Under the watchful eyes of the biggest crowd in UVa women's basketball history, the Virginia Cavaliers could not pull through against a very tough Tennessee Lady Volunteers team.
In the first half, the Cavs stumbled and fell into a 13 point hole, but were able to claw their way back and trailed 40-33 at the break. Virginia carried over that momentum into the second half, and came to within three thanks to a fast break lay up from Monica Wright to Chelsea Shine. On the ensuing Lady Vols possession, a four point play from Angie Bjorklund was the turning point in a game which ultimately saw Tennessee getting it's revenge from last season.
The Cavaliers had three players in double figures as Monica Wright paced the Cavs with 21 points. Simone Egwu finished with 10, while sophomore Ariana Moorer chipped in 12.
Virginia falls to 3-1 on the season, and will now play in the Junkanoo Jam in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island. Their first opponent is Indiana, and they will face off Thursday at 2:15 p.m.
