The ladies play today at 5;30. the game is on ESPNU; they are 25 point favorites. interesting story line; the coach at Chattanooga was assistant head coach at VT last year. should be a good game to get the rust off after taking a break after the ACC tournament. sorry about the lack of caps; my keyboard has become uncooperative.
LET'S GO HOKIES

Game sold out in an hour! That's awesome!!! Glad to see the (much deserved) support.
Crowd is rocking.
Did they not send the commentators to blacksburg? Or am I wrong
They sent them to Seattle. /s
I asked the same thing. The sound is so distorted and you can't hear the crowd.
They're there. It's just poor quality from espnu
Chattanooga should've given their tickets back if they can't even fill up behind their own bench.
VT looks great. Chattanooga struggling.
The area behind the visitors bench as apparently reserved for USC fans and friends which didn't bother to show.
It is so awesome to hear and see this crowd. If you're a top talent in women's basketball, why would you not want to come play at a school that supports a women's program like this?!
Mocs might run out of fouls at this rate lol
They seem to have brought extra.
Does everyone get bacon if we miss 2?
We owe bacon
We're playing very sloppy. Hope it's just the jitters. Cause we should be up by a dozen at this point.
Thank you, Georgia
Don't think Smithfield is doing for the tourney. But the crowd wanted it.
Everybody loves bacon.
Stopped turning the ball over and went on a 9-0 run.
Solid first half. Felt a bit like we were startijg to get cute at the end of the half, so hopefully we stay focused
That opening stretch of the 2Q was nice. We had outscored them 8-0.
This is a good post-acc championship game to remind us its all to play for, all over again
Hella sloppy 3rd quarter
Are moving screens a foul in the women's game?
Asking for a friend.
Way too many turnovers and loose play. But the refs have swallowed the whistles this second half. That's is benefitting Chattanooga
Mocs held serve and drew even for the 3Q. We still lead by 15.
Did they say Liz was in foul trouble? She barely played any defense to close out the quarter.
She has 0 PFs.
So my question remains then. 🤔
Whew... sloppy game atm. I'm glad we are a #1 seed so we have some margin to shake off these jitters.
Holding my breath with Taylor Seoule. Cannot afford to lose her. Anyone know why Owusu hasn't been playing? She didn't play at all in the ACC Tournament that I recall.
Brooks said that unfortunately she was hurt while the team was gelling and she missed out on building chemistry midseason. Traylor also has been playing really well and isnt giving up the spot
This article is worth a read on the situation. The fact Brooks doesn't empty the bench when up big doesn't seem to bode well for the depth past the top 6 in the rotation. Not sure if she has another year left as she is listed as a senior, but if she does, I doubt it is at Tech.
That's my one gripe, especially in tournaments. If you're up 15+, why not at least empty the bench for the last 2-5 minutes and rest some legs? But definitely an interesting point
Amoore being able to hit the 3 and to be so quick off the dribble is deadly. They have to respect her 3 point shooting ability and then she can just drive right past them. Especially when we spread them out on defense.
Double double bacon bacon
Spread of 25, win by 25.
Trivia for later: Georgia Amoore was the only VT player to hit a three. She made 5 (of 8). Rest of the team missed 6.
Four players with double figures. Not too shabby.
Hokies vs South Dakota St at 5pm on Sunday. I don't care what their seed is, South Dakota St has 21 straight, it will not be an easy out.
If we shut down their star player they have nothing else.
