Randolph Provides Spark To UVa Women's Basketball

Posted: Updated:

UVa put away their second win of the season Saturday as they ousted Louisiana Tech 95-82 and one sophomore in particular was a firecracker off the bench for the Cavaliers.

Faith Randolph only played for 23 minutes against La Tech and went 6-10 from the field, scoring 14 points.

The second year also had a team high 18 points against James Madison and a team high 19 points against High Point.

Her team attributes her success to seeing time on the court as a freshman and it's paying in dividends on the scoreboard.

UVa senior guard Ataira Franklin said, "Faith's been huge for us this year scoring - you know her coming off the bench - she was definitely a spark. I think we've picked it up a lot defensively. I think that's something we've been harping on, just sharing the ball. Those shots that Faith got were quick passes up in transition and just moving the ball well...that one year under her belt has really been tremendous for her. Faith, you can just tell in the way she plays. She has a whole different level of confidence so I think that's part of why she's such an aggressive player this year. She's just a lot more confident."
