Virginia Tech vs ohio state
For the first time in program history the Virginia Tech Hokies Women’s Basketball team has reached the Elite 8. The Hokies easily defeated the Tennessee Lady Vol’s on Saturday after a physical game. VT held a double-digit lead for most of the game and never trailed once. Tennessee came back briefly in the fourth quarter making it a one-score game, but thanks to the heroics of Georgia Amoore the Hokies quickly went on a game-sealing run.
This was a physical game with a lot of missed calls. The most egregious example being what should have been an obvious flagrant 2 foul on Tennessee's Jordan Walker.
This is nothing the Hokie Women aren’t used to though as In almost every game back-to-back ACC Player of the Year Elizabeth Kitey gets hacked in the paint with rarely an appropriate whistle heard.
The Hokies are the hottest team in women’s college basketball right now. They’ve won 14 straight games, including an ACC Tournament Championship, and haven’t lost since January. The main reason being the All-ACC and All-American duo of Liz Kitley and Georgia Amoore
Amoore is a highlight machine and even got approval from the GOAT with this insane step back 3 Saturday
Amoore has been doing this all year and never shy’s away from the game's biggest moments. And neither does Naismith-finalist Liz Kitley
Kitley is typically the best player on most courts she plays on.
Virginia Tech has been cruising along the last few months and I don’t think their run is going to stop at the Elite 8. This team is special and has the juice to go the distance this March. I believe that the Hokies will beat Ohio St by 10 points, easily cover the spread of 3.5 points, and join Iowa, LSU, and the winner of UMD V South Carolina in Dallas for the Final Four.
The Pick: Virginia Tech WBB -3.5
