Preview | VT (3-0) @ unc-g (1-2) | Monday at 7 PM | ESPN3


Spread: VT by 6.

The Hokies hit the road for the first time under Coach James Johnson to take on the spartans of unc-g-spot in the Greensboro Coliseum, home of the 2013 ACC Tournament.  And much like a the noon Thursday game of the ACC Tournament, this game will likely only have a smattering of a few thousand people.  It is a common practice of ACC teams to play at unc-g every few years to prep for the ACC Tournament (getting used to the shooting background, etc.).

This game will mark the 8th time the two schools have met, with Tech a perfect 7-0 against the spartan spirit.  And this will mark the 5th time the two schools have played in the last 7 years, with three of those games at the Coliseum for the aforementioned reason.

Tech beat the unc-g at the Coliseum two years ago 92-70.  The spartans started out that season 0-15 on their way to a 7-24 season.  They were 13-19 last year.  This year, unc-g lost at high point, beat winston-salem (not wake) at home, and lost at ecu.

As you’d expect, the spartans don’t have much size inside (only one starter over 6’6″).  And like vmi, they like to push the ball and play up-tempo.  They don’t shoot nearly as many 3s as vmi, though.  Parker is a solid PG with a better than 3-to-1 assist to turnover ratio (that’s outstanding).
