Jillian Brown (12 points, 8 rebounds), Paris Clark (12 points, 6 rebounds), London Clarkson (11 points, 7 rebounds), Camryn Taylor (10 points, 10-10 FT) and Sam Brunelle (10 points) rounded out the list of double digit scorers for the Hoos.

Yonta Vaughn finished with four points, five rebounds and a game-high six assists.

Virginia (6-2) led 17-8 at the end of the first quarter and never looked back, going into the break up 45-33, led by 20 after three, and then responded with a 10-0 run after La Salle (3-4) briefly cut the lead to 13 in the fourth.
