TV: ESPN2 (DirecTV 209)

What to Watch: It'll be a pillow fight, neither of these teams is very good ... the Hokies have struggled against mediocre competition early on and lost to Temple last week ... Iowa is equally unimpressive with losses to UTSA, Duquesne, Texas and Wichita State in the CBE Classic and home wins over Bowling Green and NC Central ... according to Ken Pomeroy, the Hokies are 276th in offensive efficiency and 36th in defensive efficiency ... Iowa is 235th in offensive efficiency and 170th in defensive efficiency ... first one to 50 wins ... Tech doesn't turn the ball over much ... Iowa doesn't allow many offensive rebounds ... Virginia Tech can't shoot free throws ... Iowa can't shoot threes.

From Bill Dyer's Game Notes: Virginia Tech is 1-3 all-time in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge ... the Hokies are 0-2 on the road in the challenge ... Virginia Tech's lone challenge win came in 2006 against Iowa in Blacksburg ... Malcolm Delaney leads the ACC in scoring at 21.8 ppg.

Yeah ... so I'm gonna skip this one. If i hear it was a good game (/makes wanking motion), I'll watch it on DVR. Use this post to discuss the carnage game. Don't burn the place down and don't drink all my beer. Oh, and don't think I didn't mark the liquor bottles. Bathroom's the first door on the left. Have fun.
