Virginia Tech at Virginia

Virginia Tech Virginia

2/12/2013 7:00:00 PM |  TV:ESPNU | LIVE STATS

Sure the Hokies have lost six straight ACC games for the first time ever, but let’s not give up on Tuesday night just yet.  It is a rivalry game so you can throw out the records!  Or as they say south of the border, expulsar a los tocadiscos!  After not winning in ch’ville between 1968 and 2008 (although the two teams didn’t play on campus for 24 of those years… thank you, uva), a streak of nine straight losses, Tech has won 3 of 5 in wahoo land since, including a 47-45 victory there last year.  Let’s just hope Erick Green is fully recovered from the bout with dehydration he suffered on Saturday, though I am sure his minutes will be down since this is Tech’s third game in six days (Green leads the ACC averaging 38.2 minutes per conference game, two minutes more than #2).

This is the second meeting of the season between these two rivals, and it is very much a ‘then and now’ situation.

Erick Green was hitting shots from everywhere but Lane Stadium.

Fadeaway jumpers with hands in his face. Attacking drives to the hoop. Shifty fastbreak layups.

 

As evidenced by his 35 points back on Jan. 24, the Virginia Tech guard was pretty much unstoppable.

Fortunately for Virginia, Green’s sublime offensive performance didn’t matter much.

UVa put the clamps on all of Green’s teammates, took advantage of a porous Hokies’ defense and left Blacksburg with a 74-58 win.

Since then, Virginia and Virginia Tech have been heading in opposite directions. UVa, including the win over the Hokies, has won five of its last six games, while Tech has lost its last six in a row.
