The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.

    We need to start growing up and playing better on the road. I know people may think they are young, but we all need to step it up because we have the talent.

    Our next 5 games are very winnable, although 3 of them are on the road

    the wake forest game on the 23rd is a big one. we need this win to start gaining confidence and momentum

    There’s only so much we can do though. Yes, we need more intensity to start on the road, but ball-handling isn’t going to fix itself overnight. That will be an issue all year.

    It is a Catch-22: with Thorns you are giving up offense and defense, but he’s a better ball-handler and passer; with Delaney you get the opposite.  With Hudson on-board now, we might be able to deal with Thorns’s negatives since Hudson is a good shooter and good defender.

    Hudson is the best defender of the three.

    Thorns is the best “point guard”.

    Delaney is the best offensive threat. 

    So Greenberg will have to do a good job of leveraging these qualities from each.
