Virginia Tech sells out ACC home games
Last week, Virginia Tech guard Hunter Cattoor had a message to fans that they need their support at Cassell Coliseum when they return home. It appears that the fans heard the message loud and clear and it was announced that their home game against Clemson Wednesday night is sold out.
In fact, it was announced that the remaining nine ACC games at Cassell Coliseum for the men have been sold out with the next game on Saturday night against Miami. Both teams coming in are ranked opponents and at 9-5 and coming off two losses on the road to Wake Forest and Florida State, wins are needed for Mike Young's team if they have any visions of getting back in the conversation for an NCAA Tournament berth in March.
Women's basketball Bracketology update
Tuesday, Charlie Creme of ESPN released his latest women's bracketology and it as good news for the Hokies after their thrilling 63-62 victory over previously undefeated North Carolina State Sunday afternoon.
Creme still has the Hokies as a four-seed, which means they would get the first and second-round games in Blacksburg like last season. What's interesting and things are sure to change, but they are slotted in the same region as Caitlin Clark and Iowa, who upended Virginia Tech in November in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Spectrum Center.
Monday, Virginia Tech only slid up two spots in the Associated Press Top 25 poll from No. 13 to No. 11 after beating NC State, which is kind of surprising since the Wolfpack were ranked third. The Hokies remaining schedule is ACC games and all of them are either a Quad 1 or 2, which is good when it comes to seeding in March.
