The Virginia Tech basketball Class of 2011 remains undefeated. With Norcom’s two district wins this week, the Greyhounds are now 17-0. Dorian Finney-Smith streaked to 32 points against the Granby Comets on Friday. Norcom is now ranked #5 in the ESPN Rise Fab 50 Poll. They are #13 in the USA Today Super 25 Rankings. For some reason, they are ranked behind Findlay Prep, whom they beat a few weeks ago. The Greyhounds are #7 in the Rivals rankings.
Hargrave’s post-grad team, featuring the three amigos — Robert Brown, Marquis Rankin, and C.J. Barksdale — recently won a game at the Basketball Hall of Fame and have since improved to 15-0. Barksdale tends to put up the biggest scoring numbers (he had 42 earlier this season) and lead the team in rebounding, while Brown shows what a sharp-shooter he can be. Rankin is looking like an assist machine and should battle Garland for the back-up point guard spot next year.
