The rumors were that the men had no chance at the “Dance” unless they took the ACC Tournament Championship. So, they did just that. The women’s team just missed their automatic bid by a tough loss against NC State in the Women’s ACC Tournament. Their season was nothing to casually dismiss, however. They played excellent basketball for the entire season, and their 23-9/13-5 Overall/Conference record assured them of a solid “at-large” invitation to the Women’s NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Last season they made it to San Marcos and San Antonio, Texas, for the River Walk Bracket. They won the first game against Marquette, but the run ended against a very powerful Baylor squad. This season the Hokies are a better team with some post season experience.
This season, the Hokie Women received a #5 seeding in the Spokane Region. They take it out to the Pacific Northwest to play Florida Gulf Coast for a chance at a solid start on their road to the championship.
Huge congratulations go out to Coach Kenny Brooks for leading Virginia Tech Women’s Basketball to its second NCAA Tournament in a row. He has assembled and coached a special lineup of some amazing Hokies.
This team has the “IT” factor. Let’s see them take “IT”, one game at a time, right down to the wire.
