Wasn't around the board yesterday or this morning. I thought we played really well up until a certain mark.... it was 21-21 and Dook got away with 2 travels and a shot clock violation in the same possession, and end up with 2 points. Before you know it Duke is on a huge run and our shocked, young team was more or less out of the game. I am not gonna blame the refs: Duke is a significantly better team, and as usual, we missed tons of wide open shots because we are a VERY poor offensive team. But the refs WERE terrible, and that one possession REALLY swung the momentum- something an outmatched team like VT simply couldn't recover from.
Anyway, I am looking forward to the day our players can hit open shots. It has to happen eventually.... right?
