Statistics:

Kitley will, as usual, be the tallest player on the court and should dominate inside; although Missouri has outrebounded their opponents by 7 reb/game so far this season. Like most teams they are stronger on defense than offense on the boards; in the WF game, Wake managed 13 offensive boards and was only outrebounded by 3 overall.

They average a little over 5 made 3's per game on 19 attempts for 30.1%. Only Frank and Troup average more than 30% from 3.

They average 15.5 TO per game, but only had 9 against WF. Their Assist to TO ratio is about 1:1.

Missouri was 18-13, 7-9 in the SEC last year and lost to Drake in the first round of the WNIT.

That's all I know. We look like the better team and Kitley should get her usual double-double. If we get our 3 ball touch back, this should be a win for the Hokies.

GO HOKIES!

Great job, thanks!

Down 14-11 after 1 quarter. Shooting 25% from 3 and 31% overall. Keep shooting like that and we could lose this game.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Missouri - ugh. Lived there 6 mostly miserable years and could not wait to get out. Thankfully I ended up at VT as my next stop, so I guess that worked out well.

Just checked out the box score and it looks like we came out and pummeled them in the 3rd quarter to get a big lead. Anyone watching/what changed around?

Missouri was playing hella dirty and Hokies still beat them by 16😎

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

Couldn't even get it on the radio. Caught gamecast. Nice ending to the show.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Nice to beat two SEC teams. Too bad no one could watch it. Fans, AP voters, me, you.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own
