Asia Todd and the Lady Flames will play at Virginia Tech for the second straight season, Nov. 15.

For the second consecutive season, the Liberty women's basketball team will travel across the Commonwealth to battle Virginia Tech. The Lady Flames' first road game of the 2020-21 season is scheduled for Nov. 15 at Cassell Coliseum.

The game will be played one year to the day after one of Liberty's most entertaining contests of the 2019-20 campaign. The Lady Flames cut a 14-point deficit to one before Virginia Tech escaped with a 73-69 triumph. Emily Lytle tallied 19 points, including Liberty's final 13 tallies of the matchup between a pair of 20-game winners.

The 2019-20 Virginia Tech Hokies finished 21-9, including an 11-7 conference mark which tied them for fourth place in the ACC standings. They appeared to be en route to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2006 when the season was halted.

Liberty has only defeated Virginia Tech once in program history, but five of the teams' last six meetings have been decided by 10 points or fewer.

The Lady Flames will be facing an ACC opponent for the eighth consecutive season. They are in search of their first ACC triumph since a 45-43 victory at Virginia Tech on Dec. 30, 2008.

Lytle is averaging 16.0 ppg in two career meetings with Virginia Tech, while Mya McMillian pulls down an average of 8.5 rpg versus the Hokies.
