Hokies Skew the lancers | VT 79, windsor 63 | Exhibition


Tech completed a sweep of the university of windsor lancers on Thursday morning, defeating the Canadian school by a 79-63 score. The Hokies had four guys reach double-digits, led by freshman C.J. Barksdale with 18 points. Barksdale had 24 points in the two exhibition games.  He hit 8/10 FTs and snagged 2 steals.

Erick Green continues to look like he may be the “star” of this team.  He stuffed the stat sheet with 12 points, six assists, and four steals.  The latter two led the Hokies on Thursday.  Green scored 27 points on the trip, the most by any Hokie.  He also had 8 total steals.

Dorian Finney-Smith had another solid game.  He followed up his 15 point performance on Wednesday with 11 in the finale.  He also snagged 8 rebounds for the second game in a row.  Those 16 total boards paced the Hokies for the trip.

Senior Victor Davila was the final Hokie in double-digits, adding 10 points.  He also secured 6 rebounds.

Dorenzo Hudson had just 2 points in 23 minutes.  But he did have 11 in the first game so no need to worry about that.

Freshman Robert Brown just missed double figures with 9 points.  He finished with 15 on the Canadian adventure and drilled 3 3-pointers.

The Hokies shot 55% for the game.  However, they hit just 4/15 threes.  They were 15/22 (68%) from the line.  Tech led 38-29 at the break and pulled ahead by as many as 20 in the second half.

Josh Collins led windsor with 25.  The star of the lancers however was Enrico Di Loreto.  He scored 14 after tallying 30 in the opener (just short of half of their 61 points).  It should be noted this was windsor’s sixth game already – they had previously played north florida and oakland.

Bad News: JT Thompson, who played just 2 minutes on Wednesday, sat out of this game with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee.  Hopefully this was just a minor setback and Seth was playing it safe.  The Hokies really need JT’s high energy (and who doesn’t love his highlight dunks).

    Thanks for your efforts to cover the details of Tech basketball. We have the makings of a top-tier ACC program, so I’m hungry for any and all info. Keep up the good work!

    Hopefully, maybe JT can tea-bag some blue devils this year

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 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.
