CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia women’s basketball team dropped to 2-6 in conference play, as the Cavaliers fell 71-56 at No. 5 Louisville on Thursday night.

UVa held a 9-7 lead with 6:23 remaining in the 1st quarter, but a big run by the Cardinals gave they a 39-22 lead at halftime.

The Wahoos would cut the deficit to as little as ten in the 3rd quarter, but they could never get it to single digits.
