- VT hit a school-record 21 threes in that game.
- Improve Tech’s record to 87-28 in the season opener.
- It’s the Hokies’ seventh straight Opener win, dating back to 2016-17. The opening seven consecutive wins is the fifth longest winning streak in program history.
- Delaware sent Gwynedd Marcy to Home Exhibition 77-39 last Thursday.
- Four Hornets scored in double figures, led by Okoye Parker with 13 points.
- Delaware finished 2-25, 0-14 overall in the MEAC last season.
- Virginia Tech won four games in four days in Brooklyn, New York last March to win the first ACC title in program history.
- The 7th-seeded Hawkeyes beat the 2nd, 3rd and 1st seeds back-to-back in Brooklyn to become the lowest seed ever to win an ACC Tournament.
- Tech’s only other conference tournament title in program history was the 1979 Metro Conference Championship, where they defeated Florida State 68-60 in the final.
5 straight tickets punched
- The Hokies are one of the country’s leaders in active NCAA tournament appearances. In 2022, he will complete his fifth straight win in a show record, and holds the record for the eighth-longest appearance streak. This is his second longest of any of his ACC programs (North Carolina – 11).
Trio of Transfer
- technology has landed Grant Basil (Right State), John Camden (Memphis) and Mylyjael potato (US) Out of the transfer gate in the offseason.
- Basile is the front-runner to replace Keve Aluma, the Hokies’ No. 5 and two-time All ACC winner. The 6-foot-9-inch forward is versatile and three-point he has range, so VT has the opportunity for all five of his starters to put his light out on the green from his three and make space on the floor. Offer again.
- Camden adds depth to the wing, playing Tech’s three and four positions. Camden gives his VT, who is 6-foot-8, the option to play big when sliding into three positions. He will be another sniper to add to the Hawkeyes’ already strong external offense.
- Poteat was probably the biggest surprise of the transfer. His footwork and hands were praised by his coach Young this summer. He mostly plays in his 5 positions in his Tech.
Pledge Per Three
- Tech continues its three-game homestand for Military Appreciation Night vs. Lehi on Thursday. Tip-off is set for 6:00 PM inside the Kassel Coliseum.
