Hokies Beat USF 76-58, Leave Bubbleville Undefeated, Eyeing Top 25

Uncategorized

In their final night in Bubbleville, the Hokies defeated the University of South Florida Bulls 76-58. Mike Young rolled out his third different opening lineup of the season, speaking to the depth and rotations of this year’s team. We all know what happened last night against formerly #3 Villanova, including the parallels to VT’s victory over then #3 Michigan State almost exactly a year ago. This time, the Hokies managed to avoid the hangover loss and exit Bubbleville with a bubble in the loss column, and likely some top 25 votes in the next polls.

The Virginia Tech Hokies can’t weather the 3 OT storm brought by the Miami Hurricanes

Uncategorized

The 13-12 Miami Hurricanes stormed their way into Blacksburg to take on the 15-10 Virginia Tech Hokies.  The Hurricanes came into this game not having lost a game this season when leading at half time. The Hokies, coming off a win against Pittsburgh Saturday night was reared up and ready to go. The crowd at Cassel continues to impress this writer, night in and night out. Keith Stone (not to be confused with Evan Stone), from Miami, who averaged 3.9 points per game decided to have a career first 5 minutes of this game with 7 points and a monster dunk to put the Hurricanes up 13-4. Something I noticed about John Ojiako; he shoots a free throw higher than the clouds. Now, back to the game.

Hokies take down those Pesky Panthers from Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh took their 15-10 record to Blacksburg to take on the 14-10 Virginia Tech Hokies. The Hokies have lost their last 5, and 6 out of their last 7. Virginia Tech, at home, came in with a 3 point Vegas advantage. Seeing this game live was absolutely electric and I have to give a round of applause to the fans! The ‘Let’s Go Hokies’ chant rained down over Cassell Coliseum while the Panthers were announced, I couldn’t hear one name from that team due to the volume of the fans and that’s how it went all game long.
