The men play BC today at noon at Cassell Coliseum. The game is on Regional Sports Network. This is the second game against BC this season. The Hokies lost at BC on Jan 25 56-61. The Hokies let thus one slip away at the end of the game after leading most of the game. BC is 11-12 and 5-7.
BC is still taller than the Hokies. Jairus Hamilton(#1) was 7-11 and 5-7 from three for 23 points in the last game. Tech needs to find a way to slow him down today. Jay Heath(#5) scored 15 on 5-11, 2-5.
In the last game BC shot 44% overall and 40% from three versus their season average in ACC play of 40% and 29%. The Hokies had an uncharacteristically high 14 turnovers in the first game.
BC has been out rebounded by 9 per game and out scored by 72-63 in ACC play this year. They average 11 assists and 13 turnovers per game. I have given up predictions; but this game and the next two against Pitt and Miami should be a chance for the Hokies to get back on track if they can find some offense. It would be good if Nolley could be more efficient by either making more shots or shooting less, if he's not shooting well.
