Debbie Ryan's career ends as Virginia's late run isn't enough to beat Charlotte

Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Shannon McCallum scored 24 points and Charlotte ended Hall of Famer Debbie Ryan's career at Virginia with a 79-74 victory in the WNIT quarterfinals Saturday.

Ryan, who announced at the end of the regular season that she was resigning, finishes with a career record of 739-324 in 34 years with the Cavaliers. Virginia was 19-16 this season, winning three times in the WNIT, but missed the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in eight years.

Epiphany Woodson added 17 points for the 49ers (27-9), who led by as many as 16 in the second half. Virginia had a 22-8 run and closed to within 62-60 with 3:57 to go, but Amanda Dowe and McCallum hit jumpers around a free throw by Virginia's Jazmin Pitts to make it 66-61. The Cavaliers again got within two at 66-64, but the 49ers' Kendria Holmes hit a 3-pointer.

China Crosby scored a career-high 25 points for the Cavaliers.
