PISCATAWAY, NJ – The University of Virginia women’s basketball team lost a nail-biter at Rutgers on Saturday afternoon, 53-48.

The Cavaliers fell to 2-2 overall, while the Scarlet Knights improved to 1-1.

“We didn’t play badly,” said UVa head coach Debbie Ryan. “We just didn’t shoot the ball well.”

Freshman Brandi Teamer (Joliet, Ill.) paced the squad with 16 points. Senior Telisha Quarles (Louisa, Va.) added 12 second-half points, while freshman LaTonya Blue (Baltimore, Md.) grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds.

“It wasn’t a very pretty game,” Ryan added. “It’s good experience for my team.”

Overall, Rutgers out-rebounded UVa, 52-35. The Cavaliers shot 33 percent from the field (19-58), while RU shot 27 percent (16-59).

“Offensive rebounding was a huge key to the game,” Ryan said. “We need to do a much better job boxing out.”

Virginia returns home to University Hall for a six-game home stand. The first visitor is Howard on Monday, Nov. 26. Tip-off is 7:30 p.m.
