CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia senior forward Chelsea Shine scored 18 points, including a key basket in overtime, and Virginia stunned turnover-prone No. 3 Tennessee, 69-64, on Sunday (Nov. 20).
The Cavaliers (4-0) came into the game allowing just over 42 points a game under first-year coach Joanne Boyle, and dictated the pace against a Lady Vols team averaging 90.5 points.
FORT WORTH, Texas - Kody Burke's 15-point, 13-rebound performance led the NC State women's basketball team to an 85-79 victory at TCU on Sunday from Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
Senior All-ACC forward Bonae Holston scored 17 points and grabbed nine boards for NC State, who improves to 3-0 for the first time under head coach Kellie Harper.
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Reserve Tricia Liston smiled wide when pressed about her poor shooting start. That's because it's no longer an issue.
Liston scored a career-high 22 points after going scoreless in her first two games this season and No. 8 Duke forced 35 turnovers against Western Kentucky in an 80-54 rout on Sunday.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest women's basketball team erased a 16-point second-half deficit and took a one-point lead with 25 seconds remaining. But Kansas guard Keena Mays made a runner in the lane with five seconds left to give the Jayhawks a 74-73 victory Sunday afternoon at the Joel Coliseum.
The loss was the first of the season for the Demon Deacons, who drop to 2-1 overall. Kansas improves to 3-0 on the young season with the win.
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Boston College women's basketball team lost to Arizona State, 79-54, at Wells Fargo Arena on Sunday afternoon.

Arizona State stayed unbeaten at 3-0, and took the first game in the first-ever meeting between the two teams.
Three Eagles tallied double-digit scores as Zenevitch notched 12 with six rebounds, redshirt junior Alyssa Fressle scored 10 with two steals and six rebounds and redshirt sophomore Tessah Holt scored 11 points and two steals.
