Olivia Summiel had a strong second half

Senior guard Olivia Summiel was huge off the bench for Virginia Tech and in fact, she was the only bench player to score a point in the game. She recorded a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds and was part of the reason why the Hokies tied their season-high for 3-pointers made with 17 by going 4-for-4 herself.

She was big on boards at both ends, grabbing five offensive rebounds and six on the defensive end. She finished 6-for-7 from the field, hit both of her free throws and hit back-to-back 3's late in the fourth quarter, with the second one coming off an Ekh offensive rebound.

Virginia Tech's 17 made 3's tied a season-high that they hit earlier this month in a non-conference victory at home against Long Island. When they are shooting the ball the way they did against Rutgers, they are a tough team to beat and when that's happening, it's being done without much from Kitley. A very good well-rounded road win for the Hokies.
