Cavaliers Fall at Boston College

History was on Virginia's side when the Cavaliers visited the Boston College women on Thursday night. But history doesn't win basketball games.

The Eagles got 21 points on seven three-pointers from senior Kerri Shields, leading Boston College to a 61-49 win against the Cavaliers. It's just the third BC win in 14 all-time meetings between the two programs.

The loss drops the Cavaliers to 15-9 on the season, and 7-6 in the ACC. Boston College improves to 10-14, and 4-9 in the conference.

Simone Egwu and Sarah Imovbioh had 12 points apiece to lead Virginia. Imovbioh also pulled down a career-high 15 rebounds off the bench, giving her four double-doubles this season.
