    Instead of men’s basketball’s “Beat Duke then tank” that state does every year, here we have Beat State then Tank.

    Two straight games an opposing big has just been unstoppable except VT is up, unlike state

    39% from the floor so far, and that's an improvement from earlier in the quarter. We are still bleeding the basketball, giving it away 11 times already, to 7 for the Hokies. We have no answer for the high-low double post, which has led to Tech shooting 55% from the field. We've got to protect the ball and find a solution to their bigs.

    Virginia Tech is getting an easy, uncontested layup on almost every possession, because Duke's post players seem to think they're not allowed to move once they've taken a position in the lane. Between the turnovers and the complete absence of any interior defense, this is looking a lot like the team we saw in December and early November. Sad to see after the recent upswing. Maybe they can turn it around in the second half . . .

    Boykin is leading the team with 3 of our 11 TOs. Gorecki and Odom each have two.
    When our three primary ball handlers are the only ones with multiple numbers in that stat line, it's not a good half.

    Still not shooting well, but the defense is MUCH better. We've cut the deficit in half. LGD!!

    Ladies are doing a much better job of containing Kitley, and it is helping us crawl back in it. Down 6 with over 5 left in the 3rd.

    If we could make our FTs, we'd be winning. We were 5-5 in the first half and have missed all 6 in the second so far.

    Hope there's less to Odom's ankle problem than it looked like.

    And maybe so. She's starting the fourth quarter.

    Stick a fork in this one. Biggest Tech lead of the night comes seconds after Jade fouls out. We just don't have it in this one.

    Bright side, the Lady Heels are getting trounced by ND by 20 points.

    That's good, but I hate facing them Sunday in a "must win" situation.

    Only bright side to tonight... if we win Sunday... we will be the #3 seed in Greensboro.

    After tonight's game and our fireless play, I expect we'll be playing with a bit more spark. Hope so anyway.

    After a good third quarter when Duke was able to tighten up the defense and chip away to get the margin down to 4, Tech capitalized on more Duke turnovers and hit a few three-point shots to stretch the lead back out to 15, so I threw in the towel. While I'm usually reluctant to single out individual players for criticism here, I'll say that I was very disappointed in the play of Jade Williams and Akinbode-James in this game on both ends of the floor. It appeared to me that Gorecki and Odom played well enough to lead Duke to a win, but they simply did not get the necessary contributions from others.
