UVA Women's Basketball Faces Quick Turnaround

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia women's basketball team will go on the road to take on one of its biggest rivals Sunday, as the Cavaliers travel to Blacksburg to face Virginia Tech.

UVA is coming off back-to-back losses for the first time since December after falling by 21 to 5th ranked Duke Friday night.

The 'Hoos and Hokies have already met once this year, with Virginia winning 52-48 at John Paul Jones Arena.

Senior China Crosby scored a team-high 16-points in the victory, while Ataira Franklin had 13.

Sunday's game will be on the road, and the Cavaliers only have one day to get ready for their rivals.

Franklin said, "I mean we just have to go play. It's an away game. A tough environment. In-state rivalry. So we just have to really come with our guns loaded, and just throw the first punch, and come out in that game and play the full 40 minutes."

Head Coach Joanne Boyle added, "This is what everybody does. Everybody sometimes has a one-day prep and all that. This is where really good teams show up and they don't need two-to-three days of prep. They can go in and just perform."

Tip off is at 2 p.m. Sunday in Blacksburg.
