With the start of ACC quarterfinals, all the Big Boys have arrived and now the tournament really commences. Here are two tilts that piqued our interest.
Seminoles Size and Versatility Thwarts the Hokies
Yesterday, Virginia Tech as the 5-seed went out did what they were supposed to do and did it the Hokies way. Buzz Williams team started fast (11-0), made 50 percent of their shots and drilled 11 three’s. The Hokies easily covered the 7.5-point spread and what made Williams smile was 17 of their 27 made buckets were via an assist.

Next up for Virginia Tech is No. 4 Florida State. This opponent should be fresh in the minds of the Hokies, having lost in Tallahassee 73-64 as five-point road underdogs only nine days ago in their only meeting this season. However, this will be a tall order for Virginia Tech even if the starting college basketball odds have them as one-point favorite.
Though not ultra-talented, big men Mfiondu Kabengele and Christ Koumadje stand 6’10 and 7’4 respectively and are a presence in the paint. Virginia Tech can counter with the more talented Kerry Blackshear Jr., who is 6’10, but that is about it for size for the Hokies.
Virginia Tech will try and run, but the Seminoles can match their opponent for getting up and down the floor, as they too are a better transition team than one that works in the half court.
