Kayana Traylor scored 17 points off the bench to lead five Hokies in double figures, and No. 14 Virginia Tech set the school record for fewest points allowed, beating South Carolina Upstate 79-24 at Cassell Coliseum.

Virginia Tech players wore #HokiesForHoos t-shirts to show their support for the University of Virginia, where three members of the football team were shot and killed Sunday night.

It took the Hokies nearly three minutes to get the first points of the game, but there were a few other issues. The Hokies led 20-5 after one quarter and 36-9 at halftime. The 24 points allowed slashed the school record of 30 that was set against Furman in 2015.

Elizabeth Kitley had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Hokies (3-0). Taylor Soule had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists, Georgia Amoore had 11 points and Ashley Owusu scored 10.

The Hokies are one of five ACC teams ranked in this week’s Associated Press Top 25, behind No. 6 Louisville, No. 9 Notre Dame, No. 10 North Carolina State and No. 13 North Carolina. .

“I don’t have enough Tylenol to drink after seeing that,” Texas coach Vic Schaefer said of Fudd’s performance. “It’s been a long time since I’ve had a guard like that turn off and turn us on like that.”

Aubrey Griffin added 14 points and Lou Lopez Senechal had 12 for the Huskies (2-0), who moved up one spot in the poll earlier in the day. UConn was undefeated against Texas in 10 meetings.

Sonya Morris, who came to Texas as a graduate transfer from DePaul, led the Longhorns with 21 points.

UConn retired former Huskies star Swin Cash’s No. 32 before the game. Cash is the third player in school history to hold that honor, joining Rebecca Lobo and Ray Allen.
