There have been a lot of moving parts that have been very surprising in Blacksburg the last few days, but one Thursday night should not be surprising and it marked the end of an era. In a not-so-surprising decision, Georgia Amoore announced on Instagram that her illustrious Virginia Tech is over.

It truly is the end of an era of Virginia Tech women's basketball and Amoore along with Elizabeth Kitley, Cayla King, and Kenny Brooks had a run that Hokies fans could only dream of the last four years. They won their first ACC Tournament Championship, the program's first Final Four trip, and an ACC regular-season championship this past season.

In her goodbye message post on Instagram, Amoore never mentioned her next move, whether it's entering the WNBA Draft next month, or entering the transfer portal as she has one more year of eligibility left and it leaves the door open for her to join Brooks at Kentucky for the 2024-25 season.

Amoore leaves Virginia Tech as an All-American, one of the most gifted women's basketball players of all time and in reality, along with Kitley, she should have her number hang inside Cassell Coliseum someday.

Georgia Amoore was not only a great basketball player but a great person too. No matter what she decides to do next, Hokies fans will follow her and root for her. She recently made the Australia Olympic 26-player Training Team that will compete this summer in the Olympics in Paris and all of Hokie Nation will be watching and cheering her on, if she makes the team of course.

Whether or not she enters the WNBA Draft or the transfer portal remains to be seen, but she will always be a Hokie and Blacksburg will always be home.
