Cavaliers avenge earlier loss at the hands of the Hokies

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia Tech fell to the in-state rival Cavaliers in hoops action Tuesday night in Charlottesville.  Virginia entered the game ranked #7, and is eyeing a deep N.C.A.A. run.  Tech entered the contest with a 13-11 record, having stopped a 5 game skid against Clemson on Saturday.  Virginia Tech upset Virginia at the Cassell earlier this year, but John Paul Jones Arena was too tough for the Hokies to tame.  U.V.A. held the Hokies to 20 first half points, and held a 12 point advantage into the break.

The Hokies were paced by Justin Robinson with 16 points. The Cavaliers were led by forward Anthony Gill who had 16 in the victory. The Hokies wont play again until they face the Miami Hurricanes on Feb. 17th. Hopefully over the next 8 days, the Hokies will find the magic that had them 4-1 in the early A.C.C. season.
