For the second consecutive season, the Virginia Tech women's basketball team is starting to peak at the right time of the season. Following a 72-61 road win at No. 3 North Carolina State, the 16th-ranked Hokies return to Cassell Coliseum Sunday afternoon to host Boston College.
Friday, Virginia Tech announced that the game against the Eagles was sold out and Hokies fans are taking advantage of the opportunity to see their star players in person just three more times in the regular season. Tech has six ACC games remaining before conference play begins, three at home and three on the road, and they play the first of their three remaining games in Blacksburg against the Eagles.
Virginia Tech vs. Boston College, How to Watch, Preview
This game will begin at 1 o'clock and be broadcast on ACC Network Extra and stream on FuboTV.
Virginia Tech sits on top in the ACC standings, a half-game ahead of Louisville, one full game ahead of Syracuse, and a game-and-a-half ahead of NC State following their win over the Wolfpack Thursday night. Elizabeth Kitley recorded her 73rd career double-double in the win with 25 points and 13 rebounds, while point guard Georgia Amoore had 12 points, 10 assists, and eight rebounds.
What helped the Hokies pull off the upset in Raleigh was that they hit 11 3-pointers and got four each from Matilda Ekh and Cayla King. When Virginia Tech gets what they get from Kitley and Amoore, then have Ekh and King hitting 3-pointers, they are tough to beat anywhere.
Boston College is coming in off a loss at home to Virginia Thursday night despite placing four players, Andrea Daley (18 points), Jojo Lacey (14), Dontavia Waggoner (12 points), and T'yana Todd (12 points) in double figures. The Eagles are currently on a six-game losing streak.
The Hokies have a huge game on Thursday night, Feb. 15 at home against Duke, but don't expect them to look past an Eagles team that is looking to get a signature road victory.
