Hokies end season with 60-56 loss to duke

Erick Green and Robert Brown both scored 16 points and Dorian Finney-Smith had 12 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the depth and talent of the dookies. The Hokies lost 56-60 in the ACC quarterfinals Friday night in Atlanta.

The loss effectively ends Virginia Tech’s season, their first losing season since the 2005-2006 campaign. This year’s team finished 16-17.

While there was a lot to be unhappy about during the season, on the whole, there is room for optimism going into next year. You get Green back to lead the team as a senior, four rising sophomores that saw significant minutes as true freshmen, and an established big man in Cadarian Raines, who came on strong down the stretch.

As for tonight’s game against duke, the Hokies suffered through their usual scoring drought, going nearly 15 minutes in the second half only scoring two field goals. And that ultimately cost them the game as we’ve seen so often this season.

Tee time for tomorrow with ample supply of JD.
