Feb. 4th – This Date in VT Hoops History

1989 – @Virginia Tech 107, southern mississippi 92

Bimbo Coles scores 42 points (still the 6th highest single game total in VT history)

The Hokies took down their Metro Conference rivals, the southern miss golden eagles, in a high scoring affair. ┬áBimbo Coles dropped 42 on the eagles, but trust me when I say this encore performance pales in comparison to what he did to the eagles on February 6, 1988, almost exactly one year earlier… Check back on Wednesday for the details of that historic VT game.

He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. 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.
