It was a win! The game was advertised as a battle of the bottom feeders of the ACC, with both struggling for footing with problematic rosters in transition. While true, there is no doubt that it’s never easy to win against a peer, and certainly not Pitt. It was a good win. GO HOKIES!!!
Now is the time to review the news and announcements surrounding the game this evening. It’s the struggling Hokies against the flailing Panthers in a contest of pure pride and season rescue. Can the Hokies pull this one off? GO HOKIES!!!!
There aren’t too many teams left of those we have a decent shot to beat, but surprisingly, Pitt is one. Nardo is struggling this season, and his desperation is probably equal to the Hokies’. This could be a real fist fight of a contest on Saturday. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s time to look at the chart for the next 8 games and get a better idea of where the Hokies might be at the end of the season. It’s not looking so hot. GO HOKIES!!!
Well, we’ve seen the 2023 November to December non-conference schedule for the ACC Champion, NCAA Final Four finishing Hokie Women’s Basketball Team. Coach Brooks and staff have now published the 2024 conference schedule. Real challenges that all can be met and defeated. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s giving me a serious headache to review the game, but we need to take some stock in the situation. Bryan had his say, I guess I’d like a crack at it, too. Getting to the nature of the problem. GO HOKIES!!!
Time for the staff to tell you how they think that it’s going to go, and some news items to go along with them. GO HOKIES!!!
Under normal circumstances we’d be writing about a home game with Marshall in Lane... not Huntington. The times are no longer normal, and neither are the odds in this one. Big hill to climb on Saturday. GO HOKIES!!!
Saturday afternoon at roughly 5:00 pm, as halftime led to chili and conversation, it was obvious that the Hokies were struggling, and Rutgers wasn’t. It was just a matter of time, and the dam broke in the 4th quarter. Let’s go over the good, bad, and ugly of this one. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s a wrap, and went pretty much as predicted. Hokies drop their 2nd B1G game and 2nd game of the season in a ground pounding blowout. The good news is that Kyron Drones started the game, finished it, and was responsible for a good deal of the Hokie offense.
