Lol I just checked in TKP now and was confused as well. A bit different quantity of comments and concern compared game threads a few weeks ago

I was waiting for a game thread. This is it!!

Let's Go!

Hokies!

The game is on ACCN (Hulu version)

That's OK, though. We needed a game thread.

The week between games seems to have helped. They have their legs tonight.

Ojiako rebounding like I would expect a 6-10 dude

Nolley's not doing too bad on the rebounding front either

Horne just needs to hang in that corner

Horne either on fire or cold as ice. No middle ground.

Safe to say the team really needed that week off.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Thanks mod

For those that are confused, I originally posted asking why my ACCN feed wasnt working (talk show instead of the game). What I didnt realize was that my gamecast on my phone was like 4 gametime minutes behind and I didnt realize it was halftime. Once I realized my mistake I edited the post to ask for mod to delete, but he's wiser than I am and instead commandeered it for the game thread xD

They'll really get after ya

FAM!!

Feels good

Nolley is an enigma.

15

So just looking over the scores and a lot of top 25 teams lost.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Was it ever official that Nolley was definitely leaving for the NBA? I know his dad said something about it to the Roanoke Times, but I don't think Nolley ever made an announcement, and no one really made a big deal about it. I think he could seriously benefit from one more year playing college basketball if the NBA is his ultimate goal, and he shouldn't be asked to do as much next year with a better team around him.

Here's the actual quote from the dad

"Landers is a pro. At the rate he's going, he won't be back next year"

To me it was just his dad saying the way he was playing he'd probably be ready to leave at the end of the year. Since the "rate he's going" has certainly slowed down in recent weeks, I think it's very possible he'll be back. That being said, I've seen several insiders say he's gone no matter what so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

To be fair, the guy lost a year because of the ineptitude of the NCAA. He'd probably be a little further along if he had gotten some time last year. We'll see what happens.
