Eastern Michigan at Virginia Tech Date 12/22/2011 7:00:00 PMLive StatsLinkTV ESPN3 Team Stats Embed This Chart On Your Website

On Thursday night the Virginia Tech takes on the eastern chapter of the directional michigans.  The eagles complete their tour of SW VA, having defeated radford 52-48 at the Dedmon Center on Tuesday night.  That win snapped a 5-game losing streak for the eagles that included an 84-48 loss to syracuse (michigan state also beat them by 32 and purdue beat them by 25).

While Tech will be heavy favorites in this game, it is also very important that the Hokies have a good showing:

  1. VT won’t play for another 9 days (@okie state in the ‘Rematch’).
  2. The Hokies only have 1 game in the next 15 days.
  3. This is Tech’s next to last out of conference game before they start the ACC slate.

Playing well will send the Hokies into their Christmas break with momentum.  It is important the players feel they are playing well going into this lull to build confidence.  And the Hokies have been riding the gravy train with biscuit wheels lately, so let’s keep that rolling.
