Virginia women's basketball coach Debbie Ryan earned her 700th career victory, getting 15 second-half points from Monica Wright in a 68-57 win over host UMBC. Ryan, in her 33rd season at Virginia, is the seventh active Division I women's coach to reach the 700. She joins Tennessee's Pat Summitt, Rutgers' C. Vivian Stringer, North Carolina's Sylvia Hatchell, Stanford's Tara VanDerveer, Montana's Robin Selvig and Georgia's Andy Landers. After the game, UMBC coach Phil Stern announced the milestone to the crowd and presented Ryan with the game ball. Michelle Kurowski scored 21 for UMBC, which shot 4-for-24 from the field in the second half and fell to 0-16 all-time against the Atlantic Coast Conference. The game was tied at 34 at halftime.
