Hunter helps No. 1 Virginia edge Louisville 67-66

Hunter helps No. 1 Virginia edge Louisville 67-66

It's also an awesome comeback win for Virginia, and the top-ranked Cavaliers are now 27-2 (16-1 in ACC play) on the season. The Irish earned a double-bye into Friday's quarterfinals.

Kierra Fletcher's three-point play put the Yellow Jackets back on top with 3:52 to go, before senior forward Lauren Moses (Mount Holly, N.J.) scored twice for Virginia for a 59-56 lead with just under a minute to play. His OT 3 put MI up 72-70, and the Wolverines made just enough free throws to hold off the Hawkeyes (14-19), who got a basket from Luka Garza on their first overtime possession and not another one. Jerome hit the first two free throws and then, if you would believe it, Virginia was whistled for a lane violation.

The Cardinals are 19-10 overall with a 9-7 ACC record, and are frequently featured on the NCAA bubble in many bracket projections.

Francesca Pan led the Yellow Jackets with 25 points.

It was a big win for the Tony Bennett's team, as Virginia avoided a loss against an unranked team, which could have affected the Cavs' status as the No. 1 squad in the nation.

However, regardless of what opponents Virginia has to face in the tournament, the Cavaliers have shown that they are an elite team with the potential to have great success in the postseason. "You're playing more games than you would have in high school", Bennett said. "My body's holding up a lot better, and I just feel like the bumps aren't bothering me as much". "Disappointed, but I thought we gave them everything they could handle".

De'Andre Hunter's only thought with 0.9 seconds remaining was how fast he would shoot the ball if he got it in his hands, though he wasn't sure if his desperation heave from the left side of the 3-point circle had the distance or accuracy.

Huland El tied the game at 18 ten seconds into the second quarter, but Georgia Tech scored five straight points to retake the lead.

Virginia didn't wilt, answering with two free throws by Jerome with a tick left.

Both teams started the second half slow, combining to go 1-of-14 from the field. The ninth-seeded Hokies built early confidence and a nine-point lead.

Virginia's offense is now led by sophomore guard Kyle Guy, who is averaging 14.5 points per game and boasts a 28-game streak for making a three-pointer.

The Cardinals shot 46 percent in the half while Virginia was held to 31 percent. Georgia Tech held a 36-30 edge in rebounding.

Virginia hasn't lost a road game since February 18, 2017, a loss at future NCAA Champion North Carolina.

Virginia has won three ACC Championships, the last coming in 1993.
