The Hokies drop an absolute heartbreaker to the nc state wolfpack 90-86 in overtime in a snowy Raleigh, NC. Every Tech player gave every ounce of sweat they had, including a miracle missed free throw conversion with 5 seconds left to send the game to overtime (or you could say a brilliantly drawn up play by Coach Johnson). But in the end, the Hokies couldn’t overcome the wolfpack and the officials:
- Tech was called for 28 fouls, nc state just 12
- state shot 43 free throws, VT just 7 (all by Erick Green)
I was really proud of Tech and the effort they gave on the road, and you have to feel for the guys, losing for the 8th straight time in a game they could have won against a NCAA Tournament-bound club.
