Virginia (18-4) improved to 12-1 at John Paul Jones Arena this season, went to 7-4 all-time against Longwood (6-14) and won its fifth-straight game in the series with the Lancers.

Every Cavalier that got into the game scored. London’s 15 points were a career-high as she connected on three 3-pointers. Jayna Hartig contributed eight points and a career-high eight rebounds, while Britny Edwards and Britnee Millner each netted five.

Virginia continued its balanced attack in the second half and continued to pull away for the 88-50 win.
