Starting Lineup Posted for Saturday

In the Notes for the game Saturday, this starting lineup was posted for the Hokies:

  • G – Erick Green – Jr. (so maybe he is playing)
  • G – Dorenzo Hudson – r-Sr
  • F – Jarell Eddie – So
  • F – Dorian Finney-Smith – Fr
  • C – Victor Davila – Sr
Both Eddie and Finney-Smith are small forwards in terms of bulk.  But against a team like east tennessee state, the Hokies can afford to go thin.  And considering the full court press the Hokies will likely see, going more athletic is better anyway.
We’ll see if Erick Green does in fact play.  It sounded very unlikely when the injury occurred last weekend, but he must be a quick healer… or VT is keeping things under their hat.

    I’ve heard from some people who have had an achilles strain that it’s the kind of thing that can feel better the next morning or bug you for weeks. I guess like a more painful version of “tennis elbow” for people who have had that. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Erick Green out there playing today. Go Hokies!
