UVa Women's Basketball Wins Home Opener; Beats High Point 73-54

Posted: Updated:

The UVa women's basketball team won its home opener Monday night beating High Point 73-54 to improve to 1-1 on the season.

Sarah Imovbioh had 14 points and 15 rebounds.  Sophomore guard Faith Randolph had a career high with 19 points.    It was a better performance by the Cavaliers after Friday's 17-point loss to JMU.

Imovbioh says, "Coach was on us because we got outhustled in that game and she was like we need to get every rebound, I don't care how you do it you have to find a way to get those rebounds because we don't want what happened at JMU to happen today so I think everyone was on the same page with me and boxing out."

"We're glad to come out in our home opener and get a win," Virginia head coach Joanne Boyle said. "We've been tweaking things and changing things in practice. I think we need to find our identity. Now we need to break practice down and really get some shots up in practice. We are a work in progress here and are trying to figure some things out. We have to play better, but it is very nice to get a win in the home opener."

Virginia's next game is at home Sunday against Louisiana Tech at 2pm.
