Turnovers doom Virginia women

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Two Virginia turnovers in the final 30 seconds proved the turning point on Sunday, helping Georgia Tech claim a 65-62 win over the Cavaliers at the John Paul Jones Center.

It was the first home loss by UVa to an ACC opponent this season.

After a layup by Georgia Tech’s Tyaunna Marshall gave the visitors a 63-62 lead, Virginia turned the ball over with five seconds left and had to foul Sydney Wallace, who sank a pair of free throws for the final points.

A desperation half-court shot by Virginia at the buzzer was off the mark.

Telia McCall scored eight straight points to give Virginia a 59-56 lead with 3:56 remaining. McCall scored a career-high 28 points and tied the school record for made free throws, going 16-of-17 at the free throw line.

Both teams scored 23 points off turnovers.

Virginia took a 16-3 lead at the outset, powered by Ataira Franklin, who scored nine points in the first five minutes.
