The Virginia Tech women’s team, which had never before so much as reached the Elite Eight, is now making more program history with an inaugural trip to the Final Four.

Their potent combination of center Elizabeth Kitley and point guard Georgia Amoore led the way with 25 and 24 points, respectively. Kitley added 12 rebounds and three blocks, while teammates Taylor Soule and Cayla King each chipped in with 12 points.

Balance, execution carries Virginia Tech to first Final Four
By Sally Jenkins at the Washington Post
So many teams in the big games can get flat footed, stagnant and rely on one or two big scorers to bail them out. But Virginia Tech answered Ohio State’s pressure with their hands and feet. They got stunningly balanced efforts and execution from all across the roster: four players scored in double figures, including 12 apiece from Taylor Soule and Cayla King to complement leaders Georgia Amoore (24) and Elizabeth Kitley, (25). Perhaps more importantly, four different players had two or more assists. The Hokies were the definition of a complete team.
