RICHMOND 64, VIRGINA TECH 56
BLACKSBURG, Va.
– A hot first half lifted the Richmond women’s basketball team over Virginia Tech, 64-56, to give the Hokies their first loss of the season Wednesday at Cassell Coliseum.

The Spiders (2-4) shot 39.3 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes and held the Hokies (5-1) to just 10-of-39 (25.6%) to go into the intermission with a comfortable six-point lead, 36-30.

Richmond continued with the momentum, keeping the lead the entire in the second half. The Hokies came within three twice in the final seven minutes, but the Spiders outscored Tech 15-10 in that time to secure the victory.

Freshman Janelle Hubbard led three Spiders in double figures with 15 points, 12 of which came in the first 20 minutes. Junior Keri Soppe added 12 points and four assists, while redshirt junior Genevieve Okoro scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds for her third-straight game with double figures.

Despite Virginia Tech holding the 46-41 advantage in rebounds, the Spiders held the Hokies to just 15 boards in the second half.

The win lifts Richmond to a 6-5 advantage over Virginia Tech in the all-time series and marks the second-straight victory for the Spiders. Richmond is now 11-11 against ACC teams, dating back to 2003.

VCU 95, UNCG 72
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Freshman Keira Robinson scored a career-high 25 points, senior Robyn Parks added 24 and freshman Isis Thorpe chipped in a career-best 22, and VCU erupted offensively shooting 60.3 percent in a 95-72 drubbing of UNCG Wednesday afternoon.

The Rams won their fourth in a row, including third straight on the road, to improve to 5-1, their best start in five years.  All three of those road victories have come by double-digits.

VCU, which entered the game averaging an Atlantic 10-best 7.6 three's, went 10-of-17 from behind the arc.
