Virginia Tech Hoops Late Review/Early Preview

It would be safe to say that this was a season Hokie fans would like to forget in a lot of ways. The season was disappointing, finishing 16-17 and 4-12 in the ACC, and coach Seth Greenberg was fired in late April. Let's not forget the mass exodus of assistant coaches that left before Greenberg's firing too. Fortunately, James Johnson, who had left three weeks prior, agreed to come back as head coach. But that wasn't the only big news. Dorian Finney-Smith, highly touted freshman last year, elected to transfer, along with top 2012 recruit Montrezl Harrell.

Who Stood Out: Erick Green did everything he could do keep Virginia Tech in games. Green did miss two games, and in the 31 games he did play, scored double digits in 30 of them. Green led the team in scoring, assists, and was in the top three on the team in all three shooting categories (field goal percentage, free throw percentage, three point percentage).

Looking Ahead:Aside from Finney-Smith transferring, Dorenzo Hudson and Victor Davila graduated. The lone recruit coming in is Marshall Wood from nearby Rustburg, VA.

Early Prediction: With all of the turnover in the offseason, this is going to be a new Virginia Tech team, one with a coach that the people will actually like. The roster is going to be young for the most part, and this will be Erick Green's team. He will need others to step up, and I don't think the Hokies have the talent or depth to be a contender this year. They will likely finish near the bottom of the ACC.
