Fresh off a trip to the Final Four last spring, the Virginia Tech women’s basketball team is looking to take it one step further in 2023-24. Wednesday, the Hokies finalized their non-conference schedule with some interesting matchups.
Virginia Tech women’s basketball finalizes non-conference games
Virginia Tech opens with High Point University, then will play Iown in Charlotte, North Carolina on Nov. 9 at the Spectrum Center. After games with Houston Christian and UNC-Greensboro, they head to the Cayman Islands against Kansas on Nov. 24 and Tulane on Nov. 25.
On Nov. 30, the Hokies will get a shot at LSU after the Tigers, who ended up beating Iowa in the championship game, in a rematch of the National Semifinal last season in Texas. This will be a must-see TV event at its finest early in the season.
Virginia Tech will end the non-conference schedule with Long Island University, Radford, Rutgers, and William & Mary. The Hokies will then dive into ACC play after that and their conference schedule will be announced at a later date.
Virginia Tech got some good news over the weekend when 6-foot-6 center Carla Silva committed to the Hokies. She decided to go to Blacksburg over some of the other top programs in the country, including the University of Connecticut, the University of Maryland, and the University of Tennessee.
The Hokies were honored at the Virginia Tech football game last Saturday night against Old Dominion for their run last season. They won their first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship before winning the Seattle, Washington Regional to get to the Final Four.
It won’t be long before practices start for the Hokies and the work begins to embark on what they hope will be another deep NCAA Tournament run. They were struggling to get non-conference games, but they were able to finalize the schedule for 2023-24.
