Virginia Tech Hokies Articles, Photos, and Videos

Virginia vs Virginia Tech Virginia could be No. 1 if it beats Virginia Tech

It got nothing but. air.

The Hokies failed to do that in losing 78-52 to Virginia at Cassell Coliseum on January 3, but exacted their revenge by closing off the middle to the Cavaliers and forcing them to try to win from outside.

The Virginia Tech Hokies (18-7, 7-5) bolstered their NCAA tournament resume in a big way Saturday night when they stunned the No. 2 Virginia Cavaliers, 61-60, in overtime at John Paul Jones Arena.

It was the fewest points Virginia Tech has scored this season, although the Hokies reeled off six wins in their next nine games to remain in the hunt, for a second straight NCAA berth. They have now won five of their past six games, including victories over North Carolina, along with this triumph at Virginia.

"[Toussaint] was driving and it was a floater, so I just needed to be on the opposite side of the rim, just in case it didn't go in", Moses said.

"I think us never giving up is a huge step for our program", Robinson said after the win, according to the team's official Twitter account.

They also have four Quadrant 2 wins and only two losses outside Quadrant 1.

So the edge, I think, goes to Virginia.

"They played a lot harder", De'Andre Hunter added.

"I" m thankful for the start.

The Cavaliers were ranked eighth at the time and only in the nascent stages of becoming a team many analysts consider a favorite to reach its first Final Four under Coach Tony Bennett, who has endured his share of disappointment in the NCAA tournament. "It's just been more of an emphasis on holding one another accountable", said Tech Head Coach, Buzz Williams. "Watching tape of ourselves and literally just practicing that". "We need to find people that can make a shot a feel better about what they're doing". Expectedly, it was apple-picking for him, as he made easy work of over 10 plus students, still displaying remnants of skill that he had through his storied Duke time and stints in the National Basketball Association.

The Tech-UVA women's basketball game was presented by Virginia529, the official college savings plan of Virginia Tech Athletics and the University of Virginia Athletics. Virginia moves the ball around and utilizes a lot of screens to get their shooters open in space, taking almost a full shot clock before generating a shot. "They played good defense". And it won't do anything to detract from the critics that say the Cavaliers can't win the big game.

Emery made 13 of 20 from the floor, including three 3-pointers for the Hokies, who shot 55 percent in the second half and 45.1 percent for the game.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Matt Farrell scored a career-high 28 points to lead Notre Dame's potent three-guard attack in an 84-69 victory Saturday over Florida State. "It was a really good look". If they can do that, they could end up No. 1 when it really counts-in early April. "That's ACC basketball and if you are a little off, that's enough".

Guy was off by quite a bit.

Leading scorer Tyler Cook had just eight points for the Hawkeyes (12-15, 3-11).

Give him credit for perspective, though.

The Boilermakers (23-4, 12-2) have lost two straight after winning a school-record 19 games in a row.

Bennett, though, shouldn't be anxious, at least not according to Williams.

Whichever team gets to No. 1, it's sure to spark debate. "I will go right back to the line like I did last time", Hall said.

This Cavaliers team has found many different ways to win games, even against the toughest of circumstances.

They are? Bennett probably will be relieved, and surprised, to hear that. Robinson led Tech in scoring with 20 points, and he came into the game as a 77.3% free throw shooter.
