Game Recap | hoos (3-2) 74, Hokies (2-3) 58


“God. Just make it stop.” Five syllables that pretty much sum up the Hokies’ demoralizing 16-point home loss to the hoos.

This will probably be the shortest recap in the history of TechHoops.com. Here’s all you need to know. Erick Green scored a career-high 35 points. Doesn’t take a math major to figure out that the rest of the team only scored 23 points.

Green, the nation’s leading scorer, was the only Virginia Tech player to score more than 10 points. He also had a career-high nine rebounds.

The Hokies blew a 19-10 lead in the first half with about 11 minutes to play. They allowed uva to go on a 24-2 run, and that was pretty much the ball game. Tech never recovered and never really made it a game after that. All they did was keep from getting blown out like dook did at miami last night.

Jarell Eddie had 9 points, Rankin had 6, Raines had 4, Joey van Zegeren and C.J. Barksdale each had two. And that was it.

I think it’s safe to say that we can add uva’s Evan Nolte to our Opponents Hall of Fame as he scored a career-high 18 points.

Also, uva had a season-high 11 three-pointers. And its 74 points are the most the hoos have scred in ACC play this season.

Robert Brown was ice cold and a non factor offensively. He went 0-for-3 in 24 minutes, had one turnover and four personal fouls. JVZ had a Deron Washington-like tomahawk dunk, except that it was called an offensive foul.

Tech didn’t defend the three at all and didn’t do anything on offense. On the plus side, the hoos only give up 50 points a game and tonight, VT scored 58. So… there’s that.

If you watched this game, I feel for you, because it was a train wreck. Except that you can clean up a train wreck. I don’t think this team is bouncing back or getting its act together. I think this is what you can expect for the rest of the season: Erick Green getting his 25 a game and wondering if the rest of the team will show up.
