Virginia Tech Hokies Drop a Close One to the Iowa Hawkeyes: 76-80

This could have been a heartbreaking and backbreaking loss. The Iowa Lady Hawkeyes are ranked #3 in the preseason polls and picked to head to the Beeg Shew again this season. The Hokies drawing a 2nd game contest against them might have seemed a cool and wonderful thing... The truth is that the Hokies needed a few more games to get into rhythm and get some of the newer players on the deeper side of the bench some time on the boards. Getting thrown to a major contest against a championship level opponent (even though the Hokies are championship level, too) wasn’t a particularly great thing.
