There Is A Buzz In Blacksburg, VA. Virginia Tech Upsets #4 Virginia 70-68
The Commonweath Clash is on.
Virginia Tech has been kicked in the jimmies lately on the hardwood by in-state rival Virginia. Monday night the Hokies kicked back.
Behind a sizzling second half shooting performance (16-27 [59.3%]) Virginia Tech defeated #4 Virginia 70 - 68 to end a seven game losing streak to the Wahoos.
“I’m happy for our guys." Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams said. "I’m proud of our guys. I wish it counted for more than one win,"
Wouldn't that be nice.
Virginia Tech is off to their best start in the ACC in 9 years and are 10-5 overall.
Looming next for the Hokies is a Saturday date at Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on the 14th ranked Duke Blue Devils.
Hey you beat your in-state rival for the first time in seven games it would be a hell of a way to back up that win than by defeating last year's national champion on its home floor in front of the Cameron Crazies.
That hasn't happened in nine years.
