Virginia Tech Women's Basketball
The Virginia Tech Women's basketball team
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!!!!
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!!!
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!!!
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!!!
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!!!
It was the 2nd home game of the season for the Lady Hokies, and they had a much needed get to know each other and empty the bench sort of contest. Houston Christian kept it tight in the 1st quarter and then the Hokies stood on the gas. Georgia Amoore sets another record. GO HOKIES!!!
Wow did the Lady Hokies put a scare into Caitlin Clark and Iowa’s remaining foul bait teammates. Clark is the Lady Hawkeyes and proved it. The Lady Hokies are for real in 2023-2024 and proved that, too. GO HOKIES!!!
The first week in November means the start of the Hoops season, and the Lady Hokies opened at home against High Point University. It was a special occasion because the team got their banner and rings for the Final Four appearance. It wasn’t so special for High Point, though. The Hokies dominated. GO HOKIES!!!
Monday, both basketball teams take to Cassell Coliseum’s Carilion Court to get their 2023-2024 basketball seasons underway. The women have a tall hill to climb but their core strength (Kitley, King, and Amoore) is back for one more try at the big show. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s the highest preseason ranking in program history.
With all of the football excitement, let’s not forget that Liz, Cayla, and Georgia are going to be back at it starting in the first week of November. It’s going to be an exciting season, and the non-conference schedule that was announced, today, has some huge challenges. GO HOKIES!!!
Kenny Brooks might be coaching when no one else is around to remember when someone else was the coach of women’s basketball. Whit Babcock extends Brooks’s contract until 2029. Kenny’s staying right here where he belongs, at home. GO HOKIES!!!
Lexi Blue is a Hokie.
A matchup of Final Four participants square off.
Congratulations to KT and TSoule for being selected to play in the WNBA! KT was picked in the 2nd round, and TSoule the 3rd. Hokie Nation is thrilled for them. GO HOKIES!!!
The announcement on Instagram and Twitter is flying all over the place. Liz Kitley has chosen to return to Virginia Tech, taking advantage of her COVID year, and playing basketball at Home in the 2023/2024 Season! Yea Liz!!! GO HOKIES!!!
We’d be disappointed, if this hadn’t been such a special season, and a major triumph of its own. The Virginia Tech Hokie Women’s Basketball Program has arrived, and though enduring a tough loss, has placed itself in the top ranks of women’s basketball for quite a while. GO HOKIES!!!!
The Hokies play LSU Friday.
Well, how about that. It was a battle, but the Lady Hokies are nearly there! The Ohio State Lady Buckeyes were playing hard, and physical. The Hokies matched and did them 10 points better in the end! Tech is in the Final Four! GO HOKIES!!!
Georgia Amoore, Kayana Traylor, and Liz Kitley in double figures, #4 ranked Virginia Tech leads wire to wire to end the Lady Vols’ season. It got close, but for the first time in program history, the Lady Hokies are in the Elite Eight! Great win! GO HOKIES!!!
UPDATE: Game Time Set - 6:30 PM Saturday March 25th! The Hokies beat the Lady Vols in the 2022 December warm-up period of the season. It was a close game on December 4th in Knoxville. Hokies took it and never looked back. The Lady Vols are looking for revenge. GO HOKIES!!!
Georgia Amoore starts the Hokies rolling with her 100th three, and South Dakota State never got closer than they did in the first 3 minutes of the game. The Lady Hokies advance to the Sweet Sixteen for only the 2nd time in program history, and do it breaking program records. GO HOKIES!!!
Cassell Coliseum was rocking, the Hokies had to tone down the "Hokie" stuff because Tech was playing host to the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament. That didn’t stop the fans, though. And it didn’t phase the Hokies, either. Big 58-33 defensive blanket for this one. GO HOKIES!!!
The 2022/2023 Women’s basketball season has been pure magic, and no one doubted short of a disaster that the Hokies would make the big show, but big dreams do come true sometimes. Selection Sunday nets the Hokies a #1 seed and the first two rounds in Blacksburg. GO HOKIES!!!
Get ready for Liz Kitley, Georgia Amoore and the Hokies in the NCAA Tournament.
The Hokies started the season with a pre-season ranking of 14th, and not much buzz about doing more than getting an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Well, this team had none of that. They’re 4th in both major polls. What a season! GO HOKIES!!!
Virginia Tech Women’s Basketball Wins the ACC Women’s Tournament Championship over Louisville: 75-67
HOKIES WIN!!! HOKIES WIN!!! There is no dead pan possible... The Hokie Women’s Basketball Team completes their regular season with the fulfillment of a dream. Georgia Amoore is the Tournament MVP and automatic bid to the Big Show means more basketball in the Cassell. GO HOKIES!!
#8 Virginia Tech Hokies Trounce Duke! Advance to the ACC Women’s Basketball Championship Game: 58-37
Holy Cow!... or is that Hokie Cow? Whatever! The Virginia Tech Hokie Women’s Basketball team is on fire. They smother the Duke Lady Blue Devils in the semifinals to advance to the finals for the first time, ever. GO HOKIES!!!
The Lady Hokies shine after a break, and trounce, throttle, and outscore the Miami Hurricanes in the ACC Tournament Quarterfinals. Liz Kitley’s 53rd double-double, matched by Taylor Soule’s double-double, and G sinks 5 Threes! Duke is next. GO HOKIES!!!
There are probably going to be more, but the Post season conference awards are a big deal for the players that win them. Virginia Tech’s Elizabeth Kitley pulls down her second ACC player of the year award, Georgia Amoore and Taylor Soule get team honors, and Tech gets ready for Selection Sunday. GO HOKIES!!!
