Coming off a record-setting and dominating performance against Houston Christian last Thursday night, the Virginia Tech women’s basketball team returns to Cassell Coliseum Monday night for a non-conference game against the University of North Carolina Greensboro.
Virginia Tech looks to build off of record-setting night
In their 105-36 win over Houston Christian, it was a record-night for point guard Georgia Amoore. The senior dished out a career-high and program-record 16 assists against the Huskies.
Head coach Kenny Brooks had six players finish in double figures, led by center Elizabeth Kitley who had 23 points and six rebounds. Freshman center Clara Stack had 19 points off the bench with eight rebounds. Rose Micheax had 12 points, while Matilda Ekh (seven rebounds) and Cayla King each had 11 points. Amoore added 10 points with her 16 assists.
Virginia Tech held the Huskies without a field goal in the second quarter until the final two minutes and during that run, they sealed the win and allowed Brooks to go deep into his bench in the second half.
Virginia Tech plays its final game before going to the Caymen Islands
UNC Greensboro (3-1) will give the Hokies a better test than Houston Christian, but it is good for Virginia Tech to get in one more game before they spend the Thanksgiving Holiday on the Cayman Islands.
They will take part in the first Cayman Island Classic in what is an impressive field. The Hokies will play games, Friday at 5 p.m. against Kansas, then Saturday at 11 a.m. against Tulane. The Jayhawks won the Women’s NIT last season.
After their trip to the Island, Virginia Tech will then turn their focus to a non-conference game as part of the ACC/SEC Challenge with a game at LSU on Nov. 30, who eliminated the Hokies in the Final Four of last season’s NCAA Tournament in Dallas, Texas.
First things first, UNC Greensboro on Monday night at Cassell, and the Hokies will be looking to continue their momentum from Thursday night.
