The point guard has one year of eligibility remaining 

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s basketball program inked a decorated and experienced point guard to its incoming class, head coach Kenny Brooks announced Monday. Georgia Amoore (pronounced like A-moore), an All-American graduate transfer out of Virginia Tech, will join the program in 2024-25. 

“I am elated to add Georgia to our roster at Kentucky,” Brooks said. “Her work ethic and accomplishments add credibility as we try to build Kentucky into a contender. Our experiences together will help to make a smoother transition and I can’t wait for BBN to experience her passion for the game!”

Georgia Amoore, a Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, native, averaged 18.8 points per game and 6.8 assists per game as a senior at Virginia Tech in 2023-24. She concluded the season ranked first in the Atlantic Coast Conference and fourth in the nation in assists per game and fifth in the conference and 41st in the nation in points per game. 

She shot 41.9 percent from the field and 85.9 percent from the line, while she also made 85 3-pointers on the season, which ranked second in the league and 20th in the nation. Her 85 3-pointers also marked the fourth most in a single season in Virginia Tech program history. 

In 2023-24, the then-senior collected two 30-point games and 16 20-point games, while she also recorded nine double-doubles, all of which were on points and assists. She was the only player in the league to put up at least five games with at least 10 assists, and she did so nine times.  

Amoore set several career highs last season, too, including dishing out 16 assists against Houston Christian on Nov. 16 and scoring 39 points against Virginia on March 3. Her 39 points were the highest scoring output in ACC action in 2023-24, while it marked the second highest in a game in program history. 

During her four years in Blacksburg, she became Virginia Tech’s all-time career leader in assists (656), assists / turnover ratio (1.8) and average minutes played (34.3), while she also climbed to second in 3-pointers (330) and third in scoring (1,853). 

Amoore helped the Hokies earn their first ACC Tournament title in program history in 2023 and their first ACC regular-season title in 2024. She also played an instrumental role in the Hokies’ four straight NCAA Tournament appearances (2021-24), including their storied run to the Final Four in 2023.  

She has collected numerous individual honors in her career, including recently being named an All-American by the Associated Press, John R. Wooden Award and U.S. Writers Basketball Association. Amoore also was recently named one of five finalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award and picked up ACC First Team honors for the second straight season.
