MBB vs Boston College

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.

Go Hokies!

LET'S GO!

Hokies!

Big game today. I feel like if we dont get the W today, the rest of the season will be a real struggle. I would love to see a big win where we are able to get in a groove offensively and build some confidence for the final push this year.

Go Hokies

Seems like theres an early emphasis on driving inside.

I feel like I would get a technical every game if I was a basketball coach, the inconsistency in calls from MTO to MTO is absolutely maddening

Need to extend back up a bit before the half here....

Took them a little while to adjust to the zone. But it looks like they may have figured it out.

We gotta wake back up.

This is going south quickly.

Pass the ball around the 3 point line and take a shot with Under 5 seconds left on the shot clock😧

Gotta get paint touches against that zone. We're not going to beat BC passing around the perimeter.

We've faced zone multiple times this season. About 90% of the possessions you watch us against it and it looks like they're seeing a zone for the first time ever. That's like my second biggest frustration watching our games. The first being any time Bede drives into the lane and has a path to the basket for a layup or at least draw a foul and he doesn't even bother to look for it but instead circles out back to the perimeter so we can pass the ball around until the shot clock expires.

Also fuck these refs

Really? A BC guy who averages 1 pt a game checks in for the first time all day and drains a 3?

while our shooting is atrocious!

Go Hokies

Seems like each game, a single player tries to play hero ball and fails miserably

If you want level-headed opinions, don't go on a message board or sports forums

Nnnooo........Ye$sssss$

Dude averages 1 point a game and he has 8 of their last 12 against us. This is the life of a Hokie fan.

Gobble Till You Wobble

Let's see what we can do in the next 5 min.

Those were some huge free throws.

Who's watching? Did we get it to OT?

Whatever. It was one bad year.

Alleyne hit 2 free throws with 4 seconds left to send it to OT. Good guys ups 70-66 3:25 left.

Tough guys make free throws!

Airball ft at home. Wow

BC got a foul call on almost every possession in OT.. Unbelievable

He basically just did the same thing as he did in the Syracuse game😐😐

Anybody see the ref get up into Naheim's face after his 5th "foul" wtf was that shit...

Poor officiating but this is not a game we should be losing...twice.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Why did we settle for 2 threes when the refs were callin errythang... Great game to watch though. Good fight from the guys. I thought we were gonners when they went up 6 but we clawed back.

Headed the right direction; need a couple more pieces.

That was disappointing

We were picked to finish 14th, and they look every bit as bad as a team who would finish 14th, probably worse.

I know there is a lot to like about Mike Young but maybe the early games got us thinking things were better than they really were.

They really don't have an inside theater, which makes almost impossible to run any kind of offense. Early in the season, other teams did not recognize this and tried.to guard the whole court. That let us score from three. Now every team ignores the.paint.and runs us off the three point line. And we don't have an answer. Not going to get better until we have an inside threat.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Lost twice to a team that pretty much sucks.
