A couple of memorable Hokie games took place on this date (and maybe a third if we can win in Chapel Hill today?).
- 2008 – @VT 72, uva 65 (OT): Exactly five years ago today the Hokies completed a season sweep of the hoos (both in overtime). Tech had to overcome a 12-point deficit in the final 9 minutes to force the extra frame. Five Hokies hit double-digits, including 10 by Lewis Witcher. In OT, the Hokies pulled away behind a 13-3 run (in case you didn’t know, the Hokies OWN overtime in ACC play). RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS
- 1983 – @wvu 90, VT 86 (3 OTs): The Hokies lost a heartbreaker in Morganhole in the co-longest game in Hokie hoops history (VT has played one other 3 overtime game). This was Dell Curry’s freshman year. Tech would lose another close one, 68-67, in the ‘Burg the next year but got revenge the following season with a 65-63 win at wvu.
