The Hokies lost their first game of the season, 68-67 to wvu, in an absolute thriller that came down to the last possession.
Erick Green had 23 points and 10 assists, which gives him 20 or more points in the first eight games this season, one shy of the record set by Bimbo Coles.
Green, the senior, had the last shot of the game that would have won it for Tech, but the shot missed and the Hokies fall on the road.
Robert Brown had a career high 21 points.
This game was decided midway through the second half when Jarrell Eddie and Cadarian Raines went to the bench with four fouls each.
While this was a tough loss, the Hokies proved they can play on the road and are a legitimate opponent for any teams they face this season.
One other thing we know is that Erick Green, the Winchester Rifle, is for real. Dude is a legitimate baller.
We’ll break this game down a little more later, but I’m getting on the road for now and it’s hard to evaluate stats in a car. I have a delicate constitution.
Don’t hang your heads Hokies, this was as good a loss as you can have.
