Virginia Tech Blown Out By Duke 82-58

Hokies Suffer First Conference Loss Of The Season

Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

After starting out the A.C.C. slate with a 2-0 record, the Hokies took on Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium.  The Hokies were completely upset minded, defeating #4 Virginia earlier in the week, there were faint whispers of a possible upset in Durham.  Mike Krzyzewski had the Devils more than ready for the upstart Hokies.    Duke was on fire early with a three-point clinic for Tech.  The Blue Devils cashed seven shots from downtown in the first seven minutes of the game.  The game was never in contest, as Duke was up by 27 at the break.  Marshall Plumlee led the charge for Duke with a career best 21, and Coach K looks like he has his team ready for the meat of the A.C.C. schedule.

The Hokies hopefully take away a better understanding of what it takes to win in the A.C.C. One of the scoring leaders, Seth Allen, finished with only 3 points in 30 minutes of action.  Zach LeDay continued his impressive Hokie career with 18 points and 9 big boards.  Kerry Blackshear Jr. was the Hokies' second leading scorer with 12 and 5 rebounds.  The Hokies lace them up again against Wake Forest on Wednesday.  The Demon Deacons come in to Cassell with a 9-5 mark, and should show what these Hokies are made of.
