It wasn't the start Virginia had hoped for on Thursday night. Entering the first media timeout over four minutes into the contest, Virginia trailed 1-0. Only one point in the first four minutes of play.
After a lengthy stoppage of time due to a shot clock malfunction, the Cavs got back to doing what they do best.
Virginia outscored Purdue 26-14 in the first half, but after the break things changed. The Boilermakers stormed back to tie Virginia, and played good defense on Monica Wright, holding her to a season low seven points before she fouled out of the game. The younger Cavs responded. Thanks to a career high 10 points from freshman Lexie Gerson, Virginia took the lead and never looked back en route to a 56-49 win.
Virginia's next opponent is James Madison University who is undefeated this season. Tip off is set for 4 p.m. at John Paul Jones Arena on Sunday.
