In Game Commentary | Virginia Tech @ miami

(Writing as the Game Transpires)

Waiting on BC-F$U to end …

Ok, there is no one at the Bank United Center tonight

15:44 Tech 9 the u 2
I will be p*ssed if we don’t win this one. From what I have seen already, we SHOULD win this game.

11:38 Tech 17 the u 4
We definitely look fresh tonight. Surprised to see Chris Tucker get some action this early, and he proved that he deserved it through his hustle (as usual). Diakite looking good again. Adjusted one u shot down low and I really like that jumper (I know he missed it, but still it looked good). Keep it up Hokies so I can relax in the 2nd half.

7:30 Tech 30 the u 12
That’s what I am talking about! 6 of 7 from 3 pt land.

6:01 Tech 34 the u 15
I have absolutely nothing to b*tch about at this point. What a well played 14 minutes.

3:02 Tech 38 the u 21
Here is a stat for you thus far … we are 10 for 10 from the line.
Shout out to my fans in India.

00:44 Tech 42 the u 26
miami is quicker to the ball now. I think they finally woke up. And of course, after I post the FT% stat, we miss our next free throw. Still 12 for 13 though.

Halftime Tech 42 the u 29
Clemente’s 3 hurt at the end of the half, but still a very well played half.

Second Half

15:52 Tech 52 the u 42
Something about listening to the game that makes me more nervous. Thank goodness the technical difficulties are over. miami is definitely hustling more, but I am still confident. We just need to continue to take smart shots. This is a game of runs and I think the u’s run is up.

11:51 Tech 57 the u 48
We need some more rebounders in there. Killed on the boards in that last segment. Bring in Coleman.
McClinton travels every time he touches the ball … ridiculous. Does anyone else think Eddie Fogler sounds like Seth?

7:10 Tech 68 the u 62
Hmm … not good. Clemente leads the u with 22 tonight. Dowdell leads Tech with 21.

6:24 Tech 70 the u 62
Please add the last 3 minutes to the Deron Highlight Reel (Block, Dunk, Dunk)

3:59 Tech 76 the u 70
These announcers are making me sick. If this game goes down to the wire, I don’t want Clemente shooting the ball. We are getting beat bad on the offensive boards – 9 to 2. Why not try to full court press once to mix things up? First time I have been nervous all game. I should have known this was going to happen. Tech BBall games are never relaxing.

2:20 Tech 80 the u 74

1:02 Tech 85 the u 79
Gotta love the play by Deron tonight. Two Big And 1’s. Still cannot exhale though.

00:55 Tech 88 the u 79
I’m sorry, can you say Three And 1’s?

00:25 Tech 91 the u 85
Almost there … the u takes their last TO

BALL GAME! Tech 92 the u 85

    I like the in game commentary, keep it up! Ironically enough, they aren’t playing the game here on Indian tv, so this is the best in game coverage I could ever get. Glad to here we are playing solid ball.

    No relaxing in the 2nd half damnit Wick. Remember we don’t play well with a lead. Ok get back to work!!
