HIGHLIGHTS | ACC Tourney 1st Round | #10 HOKIES 68, #7 clemson 63

The Hokies take the rubber match of their 3-game series with the clemson tigers, knocking off the higher seed in the First Round of the ACC Tournament 68-63 in Atlanta. ┬áThis exacted some measure of revenge for the tigers taking down the Hokies in this season’s ACC Football Championship Game.

The 5-point victory was Tech’s largest margin of victory this calendar year (their previous high was 2-points).

    Did you see the clip of Eddie using his 3 point fingers to make glasses after Zo hit his last three? Classic.

      I think that was stolen from Paul Debnam. Debnam used to do that and work the other hand like he was cranking an old timey camera.
