Matilda Ehk and Georgia Amoore carried the offense without Kitley

With Kitley struggling with foul trouble, Matilda Ekh and Georgia Amoore carried the Virginia Tech offense, especially in the second quarter where the Hokies outscored Rutgers, 25-11, for a 38-24 halftime advantage.

Ehk caught fire in the second quarter, scoring 14 of her 16 first-half points in the frame hitting four 3-pointers, and igniting a 20-1 run in the quarter to pull away. The Michigan State transfer finished with 25 points on 7-for-13 shooting from behind the arc. Her confidence once she gets going can carry the offense at times and she even had five rebounds and six assists against the Scarlet Knights.

Not to be outdone, Virginia Tech senior point guard Georgia Amoore was big hitting five 3-pointers and finished with 18 points. Not only her scoring was big, but handling the ball she did a nice job of setting up her teammates and finished with eight assists. Playing at a quick pace, she only had two turnovers and finished with four rebounds.
