The Hokies will travel to Manhattan, KS this coming season to face the kansas state wildcats according to this Roanoke Times article.
Every early top 25 poll for next year has the wildcats in the top 10. They finished just one victory away from the Final Four this past season, losing to runner-up butler in the Elite Eight. They return their leading scorer, Jacob Pullen, who averaged 19.3 ppg and hit 40% of his 278 three-pointers. kansas state fellow backcourt player Denis Clemente, who averaged 16.6 ppg.
In the frontcourt, kansas state returns their third, fourth, and fifth leadings scorers: 6’8″ Curtis Kelly (11.5 ppg), 6’7″ Jamar Samuels (11.0), and 6’5″ wing player Dominique Sutton (7.2). So they do return a lot of talent and their 6’10″ space-eater, Luis Colon, is also back.
This means the Hokies will play at least three teams that will be in the preseason top 10 next year: kansas state, purdue (at VT), and National Champion duke (at VT). unc is also on the cusp in some polls (for some reason). FYI: The Wear twins are transferring to ucla.
