CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia beat Zala Volan-ZTE (Hungary) in exhibition action on Thursday evening, 63-48 at University Hall.

“I was relatively pleased,” said UVa head coach Debbie Ryan. “We had a good first half. We rebounded well and kept the turnovers down.”

Sophomore center Lynette O’Reggio (Cheverly, Md.) paced the Cavaliers with a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds. Junior guard Anna Prillaman (Midlothian, Va.) added 11 points, including 4-4 from the free throw line, while freshman Tiffany Sardin (Chicago, Ill.) had 10 points in her first collegiate action.

Biljana Pesivic, Zsuzsanna Horvath, and Jana Lichnerova each scored 10 points for the Hungarians.

“In the second half, we were more ragged,” Ryan said. “I was really pleased with what I saw.”

The Cavs played without four players- sophomore LaTonya Blue, junior Marcie Dickson, sophomore Cherrise Graham, and sophomore Brandi Teamer – for violations of team rules.

“We have a code of conduct and if the rules aren’t followed, they (the players) know the consequences,” Ryan said.

In its next exhibition, Virginia hosts the Melbourne Tigers on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is FREE!
