Lady Vols Have Rare Losing Record After Falling To Undefeated Virginia Tech At Home

  • Sunday, December 4, 2022

Senior Jordan Horston recorded her second double-double of the season on Sunday as No. RV/RV Tennessee battled No. 9/9 Virginia Tech down to the wire in nail-biter before coming up short in Thompson-Boling Arena, 59-56.
 
The Lady Vols (4-5), who were playing without senior Rickea Jackson, graduate Jasmine Franklin and sophomore Jillian Hollingshead, were led by Horston who finished with a season-high and game-high 26 points, 11 rebounds and two steals. Senior Tamari Key and graduate Jasmine Powell were also top contributors, logging 11 and nine points, respectively.

Four players were in double figures for the Hokies (8-0), with Kayana Traylor leading the effort with 18. Cayla King turned in 11 points and Georgia Amoore and D'asia Gregg each finished with 10.

After getting a jump ball call with seven seconds left, Horston had a shot with the Vols trailing by two points. That fell short and Virginia Tech hit one of two free throws to lead by three with under two seconds left. Horston caught a long inbound pass and had a final shot, but it was tipped and fell to the right.
