CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Ariana Moorer scored 11 points and fellow reserve Lexie Gerson also had 11 to help Virginia (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 14 AP) overcome its poor shooting in a 56-49 victory over Purdue in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge game Thursday night.

Monica Wright had seven points in just 17 minutes before fouling out with 6:12 left for the Cavaliers (6-1), who closed the game with an 8-2 run. Virginia shot just 18-for-67 (27 percent) from the field, including 4-for-23 on 3-pointers.

Brittany Rayburn scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half for Purdue (3-4), which rallied from a 12-point deficit to take a lead with 10:13 left. Rayburn was 11-for-11 on free throws.

The Boilermakers, who trailed 26-14 at the break, finished 15-for-38 from the field.
