New, 1 comment

Virginia Tech Hokies (15-3, 2-2) at Virginia Cavaliers (12-5, 3-1)

Time: 7 p.m. EST
Date: Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010
Place: John Paul Jones Area (15,219), Charlottesville, Va.
TV: Comcast Sports Net
Radio: XM 191
Spread: Virginia Tech +2.5

What to Watch: The Hokies are looking for their first conference road win of the season ... the Hoos have won six consecutive home games ... both teams beat Miami while the Hokies beat Penn State and UVa lost to the Nittany Lions earlier this season ... Virginia Tech is No. 37 in the Pomeroy Rankings while the Hoos are No. 56 ... the Hokies are No. 4 in the country in defensive efficiency while UVa is at No. 39 in offensive efficiency ... the two teams are pretty evenly matched and in my opinion the difference will be which team shuts down the others' star ... Tech will look to contain Sylven Landesberg, who averages 17.5 points per game ... UVa will look to limit Malcolm Delaney, who has been slowed in recent weeks by a sprained ankle.
