This one wasn’t going to be anything close to easy. Duke plays 10, plays tight defense, and gives fouls. The Lady Hokies got beaten and beaten up at Duke. They returned the favor on the former, but still suffered the latter in this one. Liz is a powerhouse, but only 4 players scored for the Hokies. Tough game but Wins are always good.
It was more like a rolling wrestling match than a basketball game, at times. Liz is wolloped, slapped, and shoved, but still double-doubles, Georgia leads in points, Liv doubles up in rebounds. BC gets away with too much, but still comes away with the ‘L’ for the trouble. GO HOKIES!!!
Something about coming from behind to beat one of your top ten ranked conference archrivals at home and then have to face them in their house. The #3 Wolf Pack was waiting, and the #16 Lady Hokies were ready. Tech pulls ahead in the 2nd and builds a big win in the 3rd: 72-61
It’s February, and besides the rush to March Madness, it’s another crossover period for the media, because college baseball season starts off in the middle of winter. The first pitch of 2024 will be on the 16th, so let's get to who’s playing, shall we? GO HOKIES!!!
This one was close. Aside from being Captain Obvious, the reality is that these evenly matched teams had to battle through an entire game and an OT to determine the winner, and the Lady Hokies take it by 9 in the end. GO HOKIES!!!
There were a few dry spells, but the Hokies took the lead early, and held on to it, slamming the door shut with a huge 3rd quarter. The Wahoos could never quite make the difference up. Bacon and Sausage Biscuits for the home crowd. GO HOKIES!!!
Georgia Amoore gets national recognition along with ACC plaudits for Player of the Week. The team steps up 2 to #17 in the AP Poll from Monday. It was a great week for the women’s basketball team. GO HOKIES!!!
The Lady Orange were undefeated at home. Ranked #22, with an intimidating record of 17-2 and 7-1 in the ACC they couldn’t keep up with the Hokie’s depth. Tech walked into a tough tournament level contest with a serious conference competitor - and took it. Georgia, Tilly, and Cayla in double figures for a huge team road win. GO HOKIES!!!
It really wasn’t as close as it looked, either. A healthy Georgia Amoore double-doubles on points and assists, Liz was a scoring machine in the 1st half, and Olivia Summiel misses a double-double by one rebound. It was a dominant performance by the Hokies and a solid win for the resume. GO HOKIES!!!
The Lady Hokies hosted the Lady Tigers for a noon tilt in the Cassell. The Hokies were without Georgia Amoore and even with Clemson struggling it was a critical ACC game that was a must win. The team really stepped up and covered the loss of their floor quarterback to pull down a W off the boards. GO HOKIES!!!
