WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Sophomore guard Alisha Andrews banked in a runner off the glass with 18 seconds remaining to give UNCW a 57-56 comeback victory over VCU Thursday night in Colonial Athletic Association women's basketball action at Trask Coliseum.
Senior forward Courtney Hurt paced VCU with 20 points and 12 rebounds, while senior guard Andrea Barbour added 12.
VCU was clinging to a 56-55 edge with 32 seconds remaining after Chelsea McGowen scored on a putback and was fouled. McGowen missed the free throw, but Andrews recovered the loose ball in the middle of three VCU defenders. The Seahawks then called timeout with 26 ticks left on the clock.
