CORAL GABLES, Fla. – With its three-game homestand in the books, the University of Miami women’s basketball team now plays the first of back-to-back road games Sunday afternoon.
Miami (18-8, 8-5 ACC) is set to take on Virginia at 12:30 p.m., at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Va.

After losing six in a row to the Cavaliers, Miami has won seven of the past nine meetings and now trails by just one game in the all-time series, sporting an 8-9 record. Last year, in the most recent contest, the Hurricanes picked up a 63-52 home victory on Feb. 9, 2017.
Winners of seven of their past nine games, the Hurricanes topped Pittsburgh, 82-58, Thursday night at the Watsco Center in their last game. Senior forward/center Erykah Davenport had 20 points and a career-high four assists, while freshman guard Mykea Gray logged 17 points, her most in ACC play.
In addition, senior forward Keyanna Harris totaled 13 points and a career-best seven assists. Junior forward/center Emese Hof logged 11 points and eight assists to help Miami finish with a 44-16 edge in paint scoring and a 45-24 advantage in rebounding.
Virginia is 16-10 (9-4 ACC) and has dropped three of its past four outings after winning eight of its first nine in conference play. Sophomore guard Dominique Toussaint paces the team in points (11.0) and assists (3.6) per game.
Coming off a 20-13 (7-9 ACC) campaign a year ago that included an appearance in the second round of the WNIT, the Cavaliers were tabbed No. 6/5 in the ACC preseason voting this year.
Following its game in Charlottesville, Miami concludes its regular season road slate Feb. 22 at 7 p.m., versus Georgia Tech in Atlanta, in another RSN-televised matchup.
