Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Christal Caldwell scored 17 of her 19 points in the second half to rally No. 25 West Virginia to a 54-47 victory over Virginia in a nonconference game Sunday.

Caldwell's jumper capped an 11-0 run by the Mountaineers (4-2) at the start of the half that erased a 26-23 halftime lead for the Cavaliers (5-2).

The junior guard added three 2-point baskets and a 3-pointer as West Virginia built a 43-30 lead with 11:39 remaining.

The Cavaliers cut that to three points, 48-45, after two free throws by Simone Egwu with 3:12 left. Caldwell responded with a 3-pointer and, after a layup by Egwu, added a layup with 35 seconds left for a 53-47 West Virginia lead.

Taylor Palmer added 11 points and Linda Stepney seven assists for West Virginia, which had lost its last two games.

Egwu scored 14 points and Ataira Franklin 12 for the Cavaliers.
