Final Stats

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Despite a 20-point effort from guard Moengaroa Subritzky (Auckland, New Zealand), Coach Fred Batchelor and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Women’s Basketball team were defeated by Virginia (UVA), 60-50, inside the John Paul Jones Arena. With the setback, Eastern Shore saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.

The Shore was held to a season-low 50 points on 36-percent (20-of-56) shooting from the floor. Additionally, the Cavaliers outrebounded Eastern Shore, 48-32.

A handful of Hawks were able to score, led by Subritzky’s game-high 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the field. The New Zealand native also connected on four long balls, which moved her into an eighth-place tie with Kimberly Martin in the school’s all-time three-point scoring leaderboard.

More than a minute into the second half, Subritzky drilled a trey ball and pulled the Hawks within a basket, 25-23. Nearly midway through the third, Eastern Shore kept the contest close until the Cavaliers went on a 13-0 run and extended their lead back to double-digits, 41-25. After three, The Shore trailed, 47-32.

Moments into the fourth, a layup from UVA’s Lauren Moses gave the Cavaliers their largest lead of the game, 51-34. Maryland Eastern Shore refused to give up as they went on a 7-0 spurt, capped off with a layup by Shauntesha Bryant (Syracuse, N.Y.), and sliced the margin down to 10 points, 51-41. Virginia answered The Shore’s late rally with clutch shot down the stretch to win, 60-50.



Other notable Hawk performances included sophomore guard Ciani Byrom (Winston-Salem, N.C.), reigning Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Player of the Week, posting 16 points, four dimes, three steals, and two boards. Fellow classmate Keyera Eaton (Winston-Salem, N.C.) added eight points and a team-high six rebounds in the loss.

The first period saw seven lead changes with UVA’s Felicia Aiyeotan giving her squad the advantage after one, 13-12.

In the second, Eastern Shore missed several opportunities to take the lead; however, the Cavaliers did not as they went on an 11-0 run to push their advantage to double-digits, 24-12. Maryland Eastern Shore fought back with a quick 8-0 spurt and sliced the deficit down to four, 24-20. Moses’ late freebie made the halftime score 25-20.

For Virginia (9-2), Moses registered a double-double with 12 boards and 10 points. Off the bench, J’Kyra Brown fell a board shy of recording a double-double. Brown finished with a team-high 14 points and nine rebounds in the victory.
