There is still a lot to be decided in the 2023-24 women's college basketball season, including the NCAA Tournament. However, once it's over in early April, all eyes for the top NCAA players will turn toward the WNBA Draft on April 15.

Virginia Tech fans will likely hear two members of this season's team have their name called as a pick. Georgia Amoore and Elizabeth Kitley have a future in the WNBA and are likely first-round picks. It should be noted that Amoore has one year of eligibility remaining next season if she chooses to return. Still, we're going with the thinking that she'll move on from Blacksburg to begin her professional career.

ESPN's Michael Voepel also believes that and he released their Top 12 2024 WNBA mock draft picks and both of Virginia Tech's stars were in there. They have Amoore going a No. 9 to the Dallas Wings, while he has Kitley going at No. 12 to the Atlanta Dream. Here is what he wrote in terms of what each player would bring to the teams beginning with Amoore,

Amoore could help provide a 3-point shooting boost and additional playmaking ability for the Wings. She's on the small side but has a lot of skill. She has made 65 3s this season for the Hokies and is averaging 17.8 PPG and 7.5 assists per game.

Here is what he wrote about Kitley,

It's been hard for many pure centers to find their way in the WNBA right out of college, which is why Kitley's first-round prospects have been questioned. But her consistency as a scorer (22.9 PPG) and rebounder (11.8 RPG) in her fifth season -- plus the fact that the Dream might be looking for depth at center -- could work to her advantage.

Both players are WNBA-ready right now and both will likely be playing as early as this season with new teams. Virginia Tech fans still get over a month of basketball to enjoy watching them in Blacksburg.
