CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Faith Randolph scored a career-high 19 points and Simone Egwu had 17 points and 11 rebounds as Virginia ended a five-game losing streak by defeating No. 24 Florida State 72-60 Sunday in the teams' regular-season finale.

The Cavaliers (16-13, 8-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame a 22-point performance by Florida State's Alexa Deluzio, whose six 3-pointers tied her career high.

Natasha Howard's three-point play gave the Seminoles (21-8, 11-7) their final lead, 55-53 with 5:42 left, but the Cavaliers ran off the next seven points. Randolph's 3-pointer put them ahead to stay, 58-55, at the 4:14 mark, and they pulled away with 10-for-10 free-throw shooting in the final 2 minutes.

Ataira Franklin scored 18 points for Virginia, which will be seeded sixth and play Thursday at the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C.

Leonor Rodriguez scored 14 points for fourth-seeded Florida State, which has a bye into Friday's quarterfinals despite the loss.
