After having their 10-game winning streak snapped on the road at Notre Dame, the Virginia Tech women’s basketball team will head to Charlottesville Sunday night to close out the regular season against Virginia. Despite the Hokies' 13-point loss to the Irish, it was not a completely lost night as Virginia Tech clinched the ACC regular season title outright after Syracuse lost in overtime at North Carolina State Thursday night.

Despite having the No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament locked up along with the regular season title, there is still a lot for Virginia Tech to play for in the second matchup with the Cavaliers this season. Seeding in the NCAA Tournament is still in play for the Hokies and if things play out with a win over Virginia and winning the ACC Tournament for a second consecutive season, a No. 1 seed is still in play for Brooks and his team.

Virginia Tech at Virginia, How to Watch, Preview

23-5 (14-3 ACC). March 3. ACC. 446. 447. ACC Network. 14-14 (6-11 ACC). . 6:00 p.m.

This game will begin at 6 o'clock and be broadcast on the ACC Network and steamed on FuboTV.

The Hokies won the first matchup in Blacksburg on Feb. 1, but the Cavaliers gave them fits in the first half, and will not be an easy win Sunday. Virginia beat Louisville on the road last Sunday for a statement win for the program looking to turn things around. 

Virginia Tech will look for a bounce-back game, mainly with Elizabeth Kitley who struggled against Notre Dame with just 12 points on 4-for-11 shooting. This is also an opportunity for the Hokies to get Cayla King going before the ACC Tournament as she can be a big X factor with her ability to knock down the 3-point shot.

There is still a lot left for the Hokies to play for and expect them to come out and get a win on the road as they head into the ACC Tournament next week against a Cavaliers team that is on the way up, but not near Virginia Tech right now.
