Tag: @ Virginia Tech (Basketball(M), February 26, 2020)

Seattle and Val celebrate the wins over Virginia Tech and Duke and how they bring the Hoos to within striking distance of another ACC Regular Season Championship. Then with Senior Day coming up, we honor a couple of Champions: our Seniors Mamadi Diakite and Braxton Key, without whom UVA would not have an NCAA Men's Basketball Championship!



When the first half in Blacksburg ended, Virginia was up 26 – 11 (!!!) and Mamadi Diakite had singlehandedly outscored Tech with 13 points.  Basketball, though, is a game of two halves and Virginia got whipped in the second half, as once again, the Cavaliers failed to put together a comprehensive performance.  For the second game in a row, Virginia allowed an opponent to have a good-look 3-point attempt that could have won the game.


Seattle and Val try to process those last three minutes against Pitt so we can enjoy the fact of a road win against a talented team that plays well at home. Then we look at how the Hoos beat up on Boston College, addition by subtraction, and that opportunity awaits. How high can the Hoos go and what do they have to do to get there? Beating Tech is first and we tell you how!
