Virginia Tech returned to Cassell's court with a chance to start 2-0 in ACC play for the first time since the 2015-16 season. Buzzketball did just that, taking care of the Eagles 77-66. The Hokies bumped their record to 13-1 (2-0) with the victory.
The Hokies' offensive explosiveness was on display Saturday. Only four days removed from a 51-point second half against the Fighting Irish, the Hokies put up 47 in the second frame against Boston College.
"We just know nobody can keep up with our pace," said Wabissa Bede after the game. "We just knew what type of game it was going to be, but we also knew to take our shots. Take the shots we practiced on, keep defending well, make sure they only have one shot."
The difference between Virginia Tech and their opponents is the Hokies are conditioned to push the pace the entire game.
