BC won again. Back-to-back! I almost forgot that was even possible! BC's first half was better, but overall they did enough down the stretch to beat Virginia Tech 66-59. Other than escaping the bottom of the ACC standings, the other big takeaway was that BC didn't need a great game from Hanlan. After a strong first half, Olivier cooled off, yet BC still controlled.

Bolden got his dunk and a foul while Hill got a knee to the head for his efforts.While his head may have been ringing in the end it all worked out for Hill. The Hokies won 65-63. Read more »
Well, that was just dumb. The whole thing. From start to finish, the game between Syracuse and Virginia Tech was a one we probably all want to scrub from our memories. Syracuse had basically zero business coming back and winning, but that’s exactly what happened as the undersized and over-matched Hokies started giving the ball […]

There’s a lot going on in Syracuse sports, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still squeeze in […]
Sure, Syracuse has already beaten Virginia Tech once this season, albeit in a game that included the kind of dismal second half performance the Orange would love to forget. Syracuse led the Hokies 42-23 at halftime in Blacksburg back on January 3, only to see that margin nearly slip away completely. The Orange were one […]
Virginia Tech had lost 13 straight Atlantic Coast Conference games, and had not beaten an ACC team not named Miami since March 2, 2013. All of that came to end thanks in part to two huge three pointers by junior guard Adam Smith, as the Hokies clipped Pittsburgh 70-67 in overtime.
Smith drained a huge three in the waning seconds of regulation to tie the game at 62-62 to send the...

For many, Thanksgiving is a joyous holiday spent with friends and family around an endless bounty of food. For a certain aviary species, though, it’s a nightmare come true.
