The #16 Hokies (19-4, 10-2) host Boston College (11-14, 3-9) Sunday at 1PM. The game is an ACC Network extra game. This should be the last easier game until we end the season with LOLUVA. After this game, we host Duke, visit Louisville, host UNC, visit Notre Dame before finishing at LOLUVA. There is no excuse to lose this game unless we fail to take BC seriously. Coach Brooks has been good at keeping the team focused on one game at a time.
The Hokies should have a height advantage in this game, especially when Strack and Kitley are on the floor together. Their tallest player #16 Krasovec only plays about 10 min/game. Everyone else who plays regularly is 6'1 or less.
Their three conference wins are Miami, Wake Forest and PIttsburgh.
They do have 4 players averaging double digit scoring and they play a lot of players. Six players average 20-30 min/game and four more average 10-13 min. They average one more TO than assist per game and lose the rebound battle by 1.5 per game. Against the Hokies they should do worse than that. They only shoot 43% overall and 27% from three.
I hope the ladies don't take the afternoon off like the men did today. If things go as they should, we should be able to get the starters some rest this game and continue to develop the other players.
LET'S GO HOKIES!
