Posted: Updated:

 

The Virginia women's basketball team improved to 7-6 and brought home their 10th consecutive Cavalier Classic title as the Wahoo's took down Princeton 69-57.

UVa guard Kelsey Wolfe had a game high 22 points and added nine boards. 

"I felt like I could've kicked it in," said Wolfe. "It just felt good. I've had a couple of days before this game shooting pretty well at shoot around."

Wolfe was named Co-MVP of the tournament alongside her teammate,  Sarah Imovbioh. 

Imovbioh put away her sixth double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Virginia head coach Joanne Boyle said, "Not just excited to win the classic...This is our third tournament and we finally got back-to-back wins so it's just a really good weekend for us heading into ACC play." 

Sophomore Faith Randolph came off the bench to score 13 points in 14 minutes with two rebounds, a steal and an assist.

"On this team I'm doing whatever we need to win," said Randolph. "So when I come in, I'm just looking to help my team. Whether that's scoring, or getting a stop."

UVa's Ataira Franklin and Tiffany Suarez both averaged 10.5 points per game in the two-day tournament. Suarez had eight assists and four steals in the two games. 

The Cavaliers begin conference play next Sunday at 2 p.m. as the 'Hoos host Pitt at John Paul Jones Arena in their first ever meeting.

Wolfe said, "The last couple of games, we definitely moved in the right direction. I think it gives us a lot of confidence, especially for our younger guys like Tiff, and Bri and Ray. They've just had some minutes underneath their belts and I think its going to help us in conference play."
