Series Snapshot: Hokies vs Lady Vols

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech’s women’s basketball program has competed against nearby Tennessee over the years, with the first game being held in 1982.

Since then, the Hokies (7-1), who are about to win the Big Ten/ACC Challenge against Wisconsin (2-6) on Wednesday, and the Lady Vols (7-0) have met for a bit, and UT leads the series 7-2.

However, Tech had a few last laughs between the two schools, roughly 230 miles apart, comfortable wins in 2015, 57-43, at Knoxville, and its most recent opener, 67-63 at Blacksburg in the 2016 season.

As the saying goes, everything can be a story of two halves. But, in this story, it’s a story of four quarters. A chaotic game, each team running away every quarter, with Tech winning by 18-10, UT second winning 21-10, Tech running away with it in the third, 27-13 and Lady Vols back to it 19-12 in quarters. Regan Magarity played solidly, scoring 16 points and owning 5 rebounds while Sidney Cook scored a brace (14 points, 12 rebounds) against Cassell.

After a 25-22 halftime break on the road, the Hokies went a big second half from downtown, connecting with six 3-pointers to win 14 points for them. The difference in the game, however, was in the fourth inning, when Tech took down Tennessee’s offense, as Lady Vols was held out by just six points (!). Vanessa Panousis was excellent, scoring a game-high 21, and Regan Magarity was the other Hokie to double that, scoring 13 and pulling down seven tables. Series Snapshot: Hokies vs Lady Vols
