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.

    You highlighted the Johnston trey, but I really liked the pass from Raines from inside the lane finding the open shooter.
    Wood very active. Both he an JvZ seem long for their height. Nice to see some shot blocking.
    While the board totals were better, there were a lot of misses by uri (their coach needs to redlight some guys from taking 3’s) and some boards we got by being taller, not being in good position. So something to work on there.
    Overall, a really good start for JJs. Ready for the rebirth of the Hurryin’ Hokies.
