"I think this class kind of reflects a little bit of the branding of Virginia Tech basketball and where we’re going," Greenberg said. "I think the ACC, once again, is a vehicle to help us build our basketball program. They’re excited about the energy that’s surrounding our program. We didn’t have to sell them a dream. They’ve seen first-hand what’s gone on in the last six years."
"Malcolm Delaney, who led the ACC in scoring in 2011, withdrew from the NBA draft, which means the Hokies return all five starters and 98.5 percent of their scoring. Florida transfer Allan Chaney, a Scout.com four-star forward as a high school senior in 2008, should complement Greenberg's deepest and most talented team. Greenberg can worry about fighting off Duke and North Carolina this season. Some other team else can worry about No. 69."
"Is he a little dramatic? Yeah, he might be a little dramatic. He's still 175 pounds running into a 240 pound guy. He's still a guy that every single team in the league grabs and holds and bumps and every single time he comes off a curl takes a shot at him.''
I can say without reservation that Cassell Coliseum is becoming one of the best and most difficult venues in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It’s because of the tremendous ownership, passion and energy that our student body has created throughout the season.
One thing about the ACC is that you don’t have a long time to celebrate. Your next game becomes the most important game.
You can’t live in the past; you’ve got to stay in the present as you try to build your resume and earn your way into the NCAA Tournament.
That’s why tonight’s game against Wake Forest is so important.
Protecting your home court, building on your past success and separating yourself is what tonight is all about.
With the 7 p.m. tip-off, I’m asking you to arrive early and help prepare our players for a frantic 40 minutes of basketball. There is something special when you walk out for warm-ups and you see the student section filled.
"Seth Greenberg, Virginia Tech: Other than Gary Williams, Seth Greenberg probably coaches "hardest," if that makes sense; during games, he has that maniacal sideline demeanor that at once both terrifies you and makes you laugh. Whether because of it or despite it, his teams have succeeded. The 2007-08 Hokies were an especially surprising bunch, upsetting teams on the road and getting into the NCAA tournament for the first time in over a decade. Still, the Hokies are the Hokies, and it takes more than histrionics and solid strategy to take down the North Carolinas and Dukes of the world. But of the conference's coaches, Greenberg is among its most viscerally impressive."
