COLUMBIA, SC(WFXR) – Virginia Tech Center Elizabeth Kitley is one of twenty top collegiate athletes participating in the USA Basketball Women’s AmeriCup Team trials at the University of South Carolina.
The camp began on Sunday and will go through Wednesday.
“I am extremely proud and excited for this opportunity that awaits Liz to participate with USA Basketball,” Kenny Brooks said. “She will be competing against the absolute best student-athletes from around the country and she is very deserving of this opportunity. Her work ethic and skill will be on full display and I’m certain that she will represent Virginia Tech to the fullest.”
The 6-foot-5 Kitley turned in one of the best individual seasons a Hokie has produced in 2020-21, a season where she led the team in scoring and rebounding. The Summerfield, North Carolina native started all 25 games, scoring 18.2 points per game, and grabbing 10.4 rebounds while collecting an ACC-high 13 double-doubles. She was amongst the league leaders in points, rebounds, field goal percentage (.531), blocks (47) and free throws (92).
She was the only ACC athlete to register two 30-point scoring games this season and was one of two players to record a 20-rebound game, which she did in a contest vs. Wake Forest where she tied a school record with 21.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to compete against some of the best collegiate talent in the nation during this camp,” Kitley said. “It’s such an honor to be selected for the trials and I intend to make the most of it and give it everything I’ve got.”
