UVa's ACC Tournament Run Ends in Quarterfinals

After watching other teams knock off the top two seeds in Friday's ACC Quarterfinals, the Virginia women couldn't repeat the feat against Maryland.

The three-seed Terrapins -- ranked No. 6 in the country in the latest Associated Press poll -- used an early 14-0 run to pull away from Virginia, then went on to beat the Cavaliers 70-58.

The loss snapped a four-game Virginia winning streak. The Cavaliers fell to 22-10 overall on the season.

Senior guard Ariana Moorer had a game-high 19 points in the loss. Junior guard Lexie Gerson added 16 points.

The Terps are the highest-seeded team still standing in the ACC Tournament heading into Saturday's semifinals. Top-seed Duke lost to NC State 75-73 and Wake Forest beat two-seed Miami 81-74 in earlier quarterfinal games on Friday.
