That’s a winning percentage of 76% all-time in the Cassell! It truly is one of the greatest home advantages in the land.  VT tallied their most ever wins in a season at the Cassell with 17 back in 2009-10.

In the 50 seasons of Hokie basketball in the Cassell, the Hokies have only had one losing season at home.  That came in 2000-01 during the ricky stokes era.  In 2010-11, VT celebrated the 50th season of basketball in the Cassell.

The Wild Hokie Club!

The Hokies experienced their worst season since the ricky "program bomb" stokes era. Sure, it would have been easy to quit on you, but did we quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!

 

And we do it for free! But, just like NPR, we rely on the generosity of our loyal fans to help keep this humble Hokie website alive. That being said, see how you can help TechHoops.com make it to 10 years!

 

Jon King, Ben Floyd and Dan Rickenbach all got in on the action and we encourage all TechHoops heads to do the same.

 

Any donation amount earns you a spot in our Wild Hokie Club. We'll even give you a shout out on Twitter and Facebook. We may even let you get armcurled by Niemo.

 

So join the TechHoops.com Wild Hokie Club today!
