Winners of back-to-back games and three of the last four, UVa-Wise stands two games out of the final MEC Tournament berth with three games to play. Elise Clyburn's team must win out and receive help to advance to Charleston later this month. That dream nearly ended Thursday as UVa-Wise found itself down 44-29 after three periods of play before a late surge propelled the team to a 67-62 overtime win over Urbana. Sophomore Cynita Webb poured in 17 points and 17 rebounds to move her season averages to 11.4 points and 10.0 rebounds per game. The Virginia Beach, Va. product has now tallied 11 double-doubles this season while having scored in double figures in six consecutive games. Junior guard Adalmaryz Rivera-Gomez is also playing her best ball down the stretch. The 5-foot-6 native of Bayamon, Puerto Rico dished out seven assists in Thursday's win while adding six points and five rebounds to her stat line. The play of Rivera-Gomez and freshman Bianca Lockamy have been crucial to the team's late season success. Behind the play of the guards, UVa-Wise committed just 13 turnovers Thursday. It marked the fifth consecutive game the team has turned the ball over less than 20 times. On the season, the Cavs are averaging 20.1 turnovers per contest.
