Virginia Women’s Basketball wins Thriller over Minnesota 73-70

A few missed free throws in the last minute of regulation almost cost the Cavaliers, but they came up with a couple of crucial steals and an offensive rebound to seal the win. The nerve-wracking sequence in the final seconds of the game was a fitting ending to an exciting game that featured great goalscoring from both teams and a head-to-head quarter.

In the end, Virginia escaped with a 73-70 win over Minnesota in Game 1 of the 36th Cavalier Classic Saturday afternoon at the John Paul Jones Arena to go undefeated this season.
