The Virginia women’s basketball team improved to 17-12, 7-9 ACC, finishing in a three-way tie for ninth place in the ACC with NC State and Georgia Tech

No. 8 Louisville falls to 24-5, 12-4 ACC and finishes in third place in the ACC

This was Virginia’s first victory over a ranked team and the first win over a top-10 team since downing No. 6 Maryland, 86-72, on Jan. 23, 2014

Virginia took three charges in the first half, with Aliyah Huland El taking two and Sarah Beth Barnette taking the other

Barnette earned her first career start. It was just the second time this season that Virginia went with a lineup that wasn’t Venson, Mason, Randolph, Moses and Imovbioh

Sarah Imovbioh’s layup with 4:06 remaining in the first half was the 1,000th point of her career. She is the 30th player in program history to join the 1,000-Point Club.

Imovbioh had her 13th double-double of the season, the 27th of her career

It was Imovbioh’s fifth 20-point game of the year and her seventh game of 15 or more rebounds. It was the third time this season that she had a combination of 20 points and 15 rebounds.

Randolph’s 23 points moved her to within four points of reaching 1000. She will go into the ACC tournament with 996 points

It was Randolph’s 11th 20-point game of the season

Imovbioh’s 17 rebounds gives her 777 in her career, moving her into ninth place on the Virginia all-time rebounding list, passing Monica Wright (2007-10 – 764 rebounds) and Dawn Staley (1989-92 – 772 rebounds)

Senior forward Sarah Beth Barnette (Lexington, Ky.) was honored before the game in the annual Senior Day Ceremony. Sarah Beth Barnette played her freshman season at Kentucky before transferring to Virginia where she has been a contributor for the Cavaliers for the last three years, appearing in 72 games. This season, Sarah Beth has put up career-best numbers in almost every statistical category including making 41.7 percent of her shots with a 32.3 percent accuracy from three-point range. She was nominated for the 2015 Allstate Good Works Team for her commitment and service to the Charlottesville community.
