He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. 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.

    Wow, that was fun! I can’t get over some of the plays Bell made. I’m hoping a light went on in is head last night and this type of performance can carry over into the post-season. He made plays all over the court. Offensive rebounds in traffic, smart one-touch passes in transition, swatting balls on the break, knocking down open 3s…he was a one man wrecking crew. Career game for Bell. And Davila..”marone!”…playing with some passion. Hoping a light went on for him, too. Jeff was a beast…AGAIN…NBA scouts better take notice. Interesting game for Delaney…pretty much a non-factor for most of the game but he was actually clutch down the stretch in a huge game when we needed it. Smart decisions from the floor general, Green. We form like Voltron and he’s the head.

    Awesome post! Hey, question: who are the guys on our team that have or can dunk?

    • Niemo

      I would say they can all dunk. Delaney has once or twice but usually goes with a layup. Green has actually had a couple of monster dunks, but rare. Garland, Eddie, and Atkins I haven’t seen dunk in a game, but Garland is the only one who might even be in question.

The Hokies experienced their worst season since the ricky "program bomb" stokes era. Sure, it would have been easy to quit on you, but did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!

 

And we do it for free! But, just like NPR, we rely on the generosity of our loyal fans to help keep this humble Hokie website alive. That being said, see how you can help TechHoops.com make it to 10 years!

 

Jon King, Ben Floyd and Dan Rickenbach all got in on the action and we encourage all TechHoops heads to do the same.

 

Any donation amount earns you a spot in our Wild Hokie Club. We'll even give you a shout out on Twitter and Facebook. We may even let you get armcurled by Niemo.
