The Virginia Tech Hokies are 31-4, advancing to the program's first-ever Final Four. While there was question to the validity of their selection as the third No. 1 overall seed, they've outlasted both Stanford and Indiana with tough wins over No. 4 seed Tennessee and No. 3 seed Ohio State.
Kenny Brooks' team, led by star Australian point guard Georgia Amoore and center Elizabeth Kitley, a WNBA first-round draft pick hopeful. Will the Hokies keep dancing into the championship game?
The short: Virginia Tech was commonly picked as the first No. 1 seed to fall in the tournament. They were placed in a tough bracket alongside No. 2 UConn, No. 3 Ohio State, No. 4 Tennessee, No. 5 Iowa State and No. 6 UNC, but came out on top, winning each game by nine or more points.
Georgia Amoore is a breakout star: The 5-foot-6 point guard is averaging 24 points per game in the tournament, draining distance shots off-the-dribble.
Elizabeth Kitley is the glue: The 6-foot-6 center has double-doubled in three of the four tournament games, coming off a 25-point, 12 rebound game in the Elite Eight.
Virginia Tech is still being doubted!: Despite playing as the higher seed to LSU's No. 3 ranking, the Tigers are favored to win according to the sportsbooks.
Final Four opponent: No. 3 LSU
