CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The University of Miami women's basketball team, riddled with the flu, nearly pulled off the improbable Sunday against Virginia at the John Paul Jones Arena.

Trailing by as many as 15 points, the Hurricanes cut the Cavaliers lead to just five on a Krystal Saunders' layup with just under six minutes to play. However, the home team would outpace the Canes, en route to a 62-52 Virginia (12-6, 4-3 ACC) win.

The loss dropped the Canes to 13-5 on the season and 4-3 in conference play. The Cavs avenged a loss earlier in the month to Miami at the BankUnited Center.

Shawnice Wilson was the only player to reach double-figures for UM, scoring 12 to go with her seven rebounds. But, stepping up in the second half was freshman Keyona Hayes. The Marietta, Ga., native scored eight points and grabbed five rebounds. Something that she will need to continue to help bolster a team that has seen several of its players and staff miss time due to the influenza virus.

Senior Stefanie Yderstrom continued her hot shooting from outside, hitting all three of Miami's three-pointers for nine points. She now has hit 22 treys in Miami's seven conference contests.

Morgan Stroman had seven points and a team-leading eight rebounds for the Canes.

Ataira Franklin led Virginia with 17 points, while Telia McCall added 13 and China Crosby and Kelsey Wolfe each added 12.

The Cavaliers went into the half with a 36-25 advantage, a lead built by two separate runs, one of 10-0 and later one of 9-0.

Despite 10 points and five first half rebounds from Wilson, Miami trailed by double-digits as Franklin and McCall each had 10 points for the Cavs.

Miami's next contest will be on the road as well, at Wake Forest on Thursday.
