No, Kenny Brooks didn’t prefer that his remaining healthy All-American, Virginia Tech point guard Georgia Amoore, get in foul trouble in Friday’s NCAA Tournament opener, relegated to the bench for half the game. 

Truth be told, though, it wasn’t the worst thing — especially not with how everyone else stepped up.

The supporting cast the fourth-seeded Hokies so desperately needed to up their game in Elizabeth Kitley’s injury absence did more than that during a 92-49 rout of 13th-seeded Marshall at Cassell Coliseum. 

They starred.
