Tech led by as many as five points in the first quarter, but extended its lead to seven twice in the second frame.
Kierra Fletcher snapped the run and converted the old-fashioned three-point play to return the lead to the Jackets, 56-55, with 3:52 on the clock.
The advantage was short-lived as Lauren Moses returned the lead to the Cavaliers for the final time with a layup at the 2:44 mark, giving Virginia a 57-56 edge.
Fletcher cut the score to 59-58 with a jumper as the Jackets forced a Virginia turnover on the next possession to regain control of the ball, but the Cavaliers forced a final turnover and converted a free throw for the final score.
