Women's Basketball hosts NC State Thursday Jan 28 at 4PM

I'm just going to keep this thread alive for the next game, since nothing much changes. I'll try to figure out if Cunane is going to play in Blacksburg.

The Lady Hokies play NC State today at 4PM. This is an ACC Network game. NC State is #2 in the country, 10-0 overall and 5-0 in the ACC with wins at BC and GA Tech and at home against BC, WF and Miami. The Hokies are going the wrong way and NC State is very good. Our Hoops Wiz said in another thread that this game may be over by half time; and he is probably right. Our only hope to stay close is if Sheppard and Amoore can find their game. Kitley is going to have her hands full with Cunane.

#33 Elissa Cunane 6'5" Junior Center 24.7 min 16.2 pts 58.2%, 46.2 % from 3, 84% FT, 7.5 Reb, 1.4 Blk

#11 Jakia Brown-Turner 5'0" Soph Wing 29 min, 13.7 Pts, 44.4% and 40.5%, 69.6% FT, 5.7 Reb, 3.2 A, 1 TO

#25 Kayla Jones 6'1" Senior Forward 27.3 min, 12.9 Pts, 57.3%, 52.0% and 70%, 7 Reb

#5 Jada Boyd 6'2" Soph Forward 17.1 min, 11.7 Pts, 61%, 33.3%, and 78.3%, 6.7 Reb, played in 6 games started 2

#2 Raina Perez 5'4" Grad Guard 27.1 Min, 9.8 Pts, 48%, 37% and 84.2%, 4.1 Reb, 4.5 A, 1.4 T)

#3 Kai Crutchfield 5'9" Senior Guard 29.9 Min, 7.6 Pts, 42%, 41.7% and 90%,

#41 Camille Hobby 6'1" Senior Center 9.6 Min, 3.1 Pts, 50%, 40% and 25%

#0 Rebecca Demeke 6'0" Freshman Guard 11.2 Min, 3.1 Pts, 29.7%, 29.2% and 66.7% Started 2 games

Stats Below:

Too much talent on this team for the Ladies to have much chance today they way they have been playing. If they take a few minutes off anytime during the game, NC State will run away from them. And they don't have the talent against this group to mike it up. But I would love to be surprised by the Hokies making this an exciting game.

Go Hokies!

Any word on Asiah Jones and whether she has returned?

Closer at halftime than I expected 47-40

Well, that was fun for a very short time........

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Another fourth quarter where we can't close. Just rough.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

a double digit lead in the 4th?

That hard no call foul was the point of no return.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Brooks needs to be shown the door. He's the worst in game coach I've ever seen. And I've watched Fuente and Corn coach😂

I can't tell if you're being serious or not but he almost beat a stacked #2 team in the country on the road who already has a road win against South Carolina.

Ok we have blown 5 double digits leads this year. Who's fault is that?

Yeah, his 4th quarter strategy is starting to wear on me, can't imagine being a player losing this way over and over. Makes me wonder if this has anything to do with the Asaih Jones absence.

Also that's twice this year were the hokies had the number 2 team on the ropes in the final 2 minutes and lost (Louisville and NC State). Also also Kenny Brooks is 2-23 against ranked teams.

I would argue if Cole wasn't here last year. We would have gone from a ncaa team to barely a nit team

Definitely a tough way to lose. No excuse to be outscored 24-10 in the final 6:30 minutes, especially with a 30 second shot clock. You could hold the ball at mid-court for 3+ minutes of that time if you slow it down.

Use this thread for the next game, also. Will check in later to see if Jones plays for us or Cunane plays for NC State.

I have seen nothing from reporters on Jones absence, is there anything out there?

I heard a rumor if you want me to tell y'all

Sure, just curious if it's a leaving/transfer thing or just a COVID concern.

So the rumour I heard was. Jones got a tech foul a couple games ago and after the game Brooks And Jones butted heads over it

Wow really, I watched that Tech call and was completely at a loss on what was called, all I could figure was it was something she said away from the camera because the play didn't even warrant a foul on her at all

Now that's just a rumor I heard so I wouldn't say completely that's the reason

I was at the game and had a good view of it. I'm pretty sure she said BS call to the ref as she walked by and he immediately T'd her up.

That's weak sauce, unless she is calling them names that should have floated, they reversed the out of bounds if it's the call I am thinking of, so calling a Tech on her for questioning something they ultimately overturned is ridiculous

And even more ridiculous if Brooks thought it warranted an argument post-game. She has now missed two games where she almost certainly would have made the difference in the outcome.

Tip off in about 2 hours. I probably won't be able to watch because it's a Regional Sports Networks game. Last I saw Cunane was expected to be out until Feb. Don't know what's going on with Ashiah Jones for the Hokies. This is a game we could win at home if Cunane does not play and if the Hokies can play a complete game for all four quarters.

Let's Go! Hokies!

I thought it was ACCN?

I was just going by what is on the Hokie Sports page. It does show as ACCNx on the Watch ESPN upcoming events page. We'll find out in an hour.

No double digit leads blown today please🙌

Trail 19-15 after one, no Jones for Tech. Lot of mental errors on both sides.

Seems like we are getting a lot of fouls. 8 on us, 3 on them.

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

Going to be hard to blow a 10 point lead in this game, since we can't get any kind of lead. 30-26 NC State at the half.

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

Sheppard 0 for 5. Kitley 1 for 7 with 2 points and 3 rebounds. Need to get those two going in the second half.

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

Kitley is so soft. Does not know how to handle the double team consistently or can take her opponent off the dribble. So hard to watch.

We need the Beamer Boxing Glove at every practice

That offensive foul on Sheppard, the defender was a foot inside the cylinder, leads to a five point swing

Kitley just got blocked by a 5'9 guard, unbelievable

Announcers with the lead jinx.

UP 3 WITH 22 TO GOOOOO

Great win!! Hopefully this is the start of something big, and even if it's not, I'm glad for the players who must be going through a very difficult year.
