Marquis Rankin also chipped in a career high 15 points (not shown).

Game Highlights | #6 duke 88, HOKIES 56

Virginia Tech basketball loses their 9th in a row, falling by 32 at home to #6 duke. This was VT’s worst ACC home loss since their inaugural ACC home game on 12/19/2004, a 34-point loss to unc. The Hokies are now in danger of just their second losing home record in the 51-year history of the Cassell (VT started 7-0 at home but are 8-7 now with two games to go).

The nation’s leading scorer, Erick Green, led the Hokies with 22.

Game Highlights | nc state (7-5) 90, Hokies 86 (2-10) (OT)

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.

Game Video | Georgia Tech 64, virginia tech 54

The hokies lose their 6th straight ACC game, their longest streak ever since joining the league.  They also lost to a Georgia Tech team that had lost 11 straight ACC road games and 24 of 26 ACC games away from home, and were 0-7 all time in Blacksburg.  To make matters worse, Erick Green had to be helped off the floor after suffering from exhaustion at the end of the game.

Game Highlights | bc 86, VT 75

The Hokies are soundly beaten at home to the team picked to finish last in the ACC, boston college. VT has lost 4 straight and 6 of 8.

And when you lost to the ‘worst’ team at home, well, that makes you the worst team. 0-18 a possibility? Not really. Even wake went 1-15 a few years back with the worst ACC team ever assembled. But this is clearly the worst team in the ACC right now. And using ‘we only had 6 scholarship players’ as an excuse is inexcusable because bc only plays 6 guys (other than token minutes).

OK, one thing I want to say — at the end of the first half, JJ needed to get a technical. The fouls were 12-5 against us. And sure, we fouled. But every touch foul went against us on defense, and every 50/50 was a charge on us on offense. Greenberg would have taken a T there and JJ needed to. That’s the difference between a veteran coach and a rookie. Or, a ‘ricky stokes’ and a guy who stands up for his team.
