With college football coming to an uninspiring end, it’s time to switch gears and focus on college basketball. For those that haven’t been keeping tabs on this season, you’re not alone. The Hokies are priming themselves for another run to the bubble and have a big game tonight against Florida State. Here’s a preview:
Who: Virginia Tech Hokies (11-4, 0-1) vs Florida State Seminoles (9-6, 0-1)
When: Tuesday, January 10 @ 7:00 p.m.
TV: ESPNU (Carter Blackburn and Jay Williams)
Where: Cassell Coliseum (9,847), Blacksburg, VA
The Opponent: Florida State comes to the Cassell as desperate, if not more so, than the Hokies after just one conference game. The ‘Noles were dumptrucked by 20 in their conference opener at Clemson on Saturday and have lost 3 of their last 4 overall. This is a big game for FSU as they host North Carolina (in addition to ESPN’s College Gameday) this Saturday, which could make them 0-3 in conference if they can’t win Blacksburg.
