It was a good start, that ran out of gas in the 2nd quarter and just never got going again. LSU played a tough inside physical game and ran hard. The Lady Hokies went cold except for Georgia and Liz. This was a tough loss. Lessons are to be learned. GO HOKIES!!!!
Time for regular season wrap ups, and this good, bad, and ugly will concentrate mostly on the season, and not spend much time with the Hoos since that was amazingly GOOD. GO HOKIES!!!
The Hokies close out the Cayman Islands "Tournament" series with a solid but close fought win with Tulane University Green Wave, 76-70. Georgia Amoore lights up in the 2nd half for almost all of her 24 points. Liz puts in 18, and Olivia Summiel shines with 16. GO HOKIES!!!
This is it. The last week. Or not. If the Hokies win, it’s a bowl bid, if they lose it’s home for the holidays. Which one do they want more? All will be answered by 6:30 PM. GO HOKIES!!!!
Both basketball teams are on the road this Thanksgiving weekend, and in the same general direction, but the Lady Hokies ended up in the Lesser Antilles to attend the Cayman Island Tournament. They played a scary Kansas team and nipped them 59-58 in a close defensive contest. GO HOKIES!!!
Is this it or will there be one more around New Years? The thing that is bothersome is that it’s listed as close. The Hoos aren’t sporting a good record, but they haven’t lacked in determination. This one is basically a toss up, and it shouldn’t be. Take the Poll. GO HOKIES!!!
Some of the pictures from courtside at the women’s basketball game on Monday evening. The Lady Spartans were feisty, and the Lady Hokies shooting cold...Except Liz. It was a Kitley sort of game and so her teammates fed her the ball. GO HOKIES!!!
Celebrating our Seniors with some candids as they said goodbye to Lane Stadium as players. We are going to miss them, but it’s college football and all things come to graduation. GO HOKIES!!!
The Lady Hokies had to put it into gear and spread around the wealth, but it was a Liz Kitley game, and she dominated inside while the Team worked through some shooting problems. It was a solid win for not having a great day from the floor. GO HOKIES!!!
A photo essay of the Houston Christian women’s basketball game. It was a record setting game (largest margin), and Georgia recorded a double-double on a record number of assists (16). It was a fun game to photograph. GO HOKIES!!!
