BREAKING NEWS: Hokies get early start on 2031 recruiting class

Tech Hoops fans, please welcome the newest member of the family, Lil Niemo; all 9 pounds, 1 ounce of him! Dad, mom and the Hokies’ first commit for the 2031 recruiting class are happy, healthy and doing well. Also, Niemo wanted me to let know that he wrote the previews for the next two games in the labor and delivery wing.
