24 January 2015

Recap: Boxscore Adam Smith had his NBA range 3-pointer hit the rim twice before popping out at the buzzer, and the Hokies lost a heartbreaker 50-47 at the Cassell to #2 and undefeated uva.  This one hurts, but that’s a good thing after becoming numb to losses recently.

17 January 2015
