Elizabeth Kitley and Georgia Amoore were the two Hokies named on the list and both are very deserving to be on the list. They are the two best players at Virginia Tech and two of the better players in the country at their position.
Virginia Tech duo deserving of nomination
This is just the latest preseason honors for both players. Kitley’s list of preseason honors is Lisa Leslie Center of the Year Watch List, Preseason AP All-American, Preseason ACC Player of the Year, Wade Trophy Watch List, Naismith Women’s Player of the Year Watchlist, and now the Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 Watch List.
Amoore’s preseason honors are also a long list. Nancy Lieberman Point Guard of the Year Watch List, Preseason AP All-American honorable mention, Preseason All-ACC, Wade Trophy Watch List, Naismith Women’s Player of the Year Watchlist, and Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 Watch List.
Through the first two games of the season, Kitley and Amoore are each averaging over 20 points a game in beating High Point and losing to Caitlin Clark and Iowa.
