Work hard, play hard, have fun. This is apparently the mantra of the 2012-2013 Virginia Tech men's basketball team. I'll admit it, I was a little more than skeptical to what sounded like a ploy to sell tickets.
Well, what may have started as a gimmick to fill Cassell Coliseum, is instead ringing true on its hardwood. This team is a fast paced, "shoot if you're open" bunch that looks like they legitimately enjoy playing for their coach and with each other.
Gone are the days where Malcolm Delaney and Jeff Allen embarrass themselves on national television (on College GameDay, no less) because it is painfully obvious that they know nothing about each other.
I told Joe that I would put together a basketball preview, but only on the condition that I am allowed to watch the first five games first. Coming into the season, it was really anyone's guess as to the offensive system/philosophy being installed and I wanted to be able to write an informed, smart preview.
So without further ado, let me break down the roster, ask some important questions and predict the results for the remainder of the season.
Point Guard: Erick Green
Thank god he's back. That's really the only thing that needs to be said...but just for kicks let's break it down anyway.
