Georgia Amoore Breaks Single-Season Three-Point Record in Virginia Tech's NCAA Tournament Opener

Georgia Amoore 1 VT UTC Pregame 2023 From VT

Georgia Amoore put on another impressive performance in Virginia Tech's 58-33 victory over Chattanooga in the first round of the 2023 NCAA Women's Tournament with a team-high 22 points on 8-17 shooting including an efficient 5-8 from three-point range.

Once again, Amoore did so with some dazzling crossover step-back threes along with some open ones to help the Hokies cruise to a first round over the Mocs.

In the process, Amoore also made some history this evening breaking the VT WBB school record for the most threes in a single season.

Her now 99 threes passes the record that was previously held by Aisha Sheppard who set it last season and was in attendance for Tech's win this evening. She's also 7 away from tying the men's basketball single-season record held by Wally Lancaster who made 106 during the 1987-88 season.

She had this to say after the game about what it meant to break the record.

"It's always good to break the record and to do it in a Virginia Tech jersey is something that I'm very proud of doing. But it's not something that I consciously set out to go and do. All I really focused on is doing what I have to do to win and I have to make shots," Amoore said.

Her three-point shooting was not only important tonight, but has been a big reason why the Hokies have had this historic season and why she has earned All-ACC First Team and AP All-American Honorable Mention honors.

Obviously, there will be a time to savor the record more in the future after the season is over for the Hokies. In the meantime, Georgia Amoore is simply focused on doing what she needs to do to win games for the Hokies in their pursuit of a national title.
