Ex-Cavalier Fioravanti transferring to St. Joseph's

Amanda Fioravanti, who announced her intent to leave the University of Virginia after one semester, will play for Cindy Griffin at St. Joseph's.

"I really like the team, the coaches and the academics," Fioravanti said. "They have a really good education department, and I want to be a teacher."

Fiorvanti said St. Joseph's was the initial offer she received as a high school player at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Frederick, Md., where she averaged 19 points and eight rebounds as a senior. She is the 2012-13 Gatorade Maryland Player of the Year and a 2012-13 Parade All-American.

Fioravanti played in eight of 13 games at Virginia, averaging 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds.

"It just wasn't the best fit for me," Fioravanti said of Virginia. She will begin classes at the Philadelphia school on Thursday.

Virginia is 8-8, 1-2 in the ACC. St. Joseph's, the defending Atlantic 10 Tournament champion, is 12-4, 2-2.
