Lynn Kidd have a night

In the first matchup in Charlottesville, it was a night for Lynn Kidd to forget. He took just three shots, made one, and finished with two points. This time, Young made it an emphasis to go inside and establish him as when he's scoring and rebounding this season, that's when the Hokies are at their best. He scored early and often in the first half and set the tone offensively.

Kidd scored the first four Hokies points on a basket and two free throws, then during their 20-2 run to end the half, he went to work in the post. He scored eight straight points at the beginning of the run, three baskets, and two free throws, and finished the half with 12 points and five rebounds. In the second half, Virginia Tech opened the half on a 7-0 run and Kidd capped off the run with a dunk off a Virginia turnover and a pass from MJ Collins for a 43-16 lead. Again, when Kidd's scoring and rebounding like he did against the Cavaliers, Virginia Tech is a different team and it opens more things up for the shooters.
