Coming off of their biggest road win of the season, the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team will look to keep the momentum going Tuesday night when they host Boston College at Cassell Coliseum. The Hokies picked up a huge road win at North Carolina State on Saturday, 84-78, after consecutive losses to Miami and Virginia.
The win over the Wolfpack improved Virginia Tech to 11-7 overall and 3-4 in the ACC and the game against the Eagles kicks off three-straight games at home over six days. Let’s take an in-depth look at this matchup.
Virginia Tech vs. Boston College, How to Watch, Preview
This game will have a late tip-off and begin at 9 o’clock and be broadcast on the ACC Network and FuboTV.
Against NC State, Sean Pedulla, Hunter Cattoor, and Lynn Kidd all came up big for the Hokies, especially in the second half to build a lead late in the game and hold off a Wolfpack rally. Cattoor hit some big 3-pointers, Kidd scored some baskets on the inside and Pedulla was able to get downhill toward the basket and finish. On the defensive end, Virginia Tech did what they have had trouble doing in other games this season that they lost, they got stops and rebounded the ball well.
Boston College comes into the game off a loss at home to North Carolina on Saturday and they are led by Quinten Post on the inside. He could be a matchup problem for Virginia Tech as he can score in the post, but he can also step out and shoot the 3-ball. One area that could benefit the Hokies is offensive rebounding where the Tar Heels were able to get some and score to build on a lead and keep BC at bay from pulling off an upset.
If Virginia Tech has any hopes of making a push for an NCAA Tournament berth in March, this is a game that they should win and the feeling here is that they find a way at home to beat the Eagles.
