Virginia Tech couldn’t build on their eye catching win at Virginia, but losing at Duke is hardly worrisome. This is a nice soft landing spot.
Georgia Tech is only playing sleeper at this point. They would have to go on a monster run just to get to .500 in the league.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies were bound for a letdown after winning at UVA and heading to Duke didn’t help. Still losing by 22 points is definitely not a good look.
I am more puzzled by the 52 points they scored than the margin of victory. They scored more against the Cavaliers and Duke is not a good defensive team.
Essentially the offense took a break. The shooting was not great but not terrible. They did get only four trips to the line the whole game and got owned on the boards.
Odds are the Hokies weren’t going to beat Virginia and Duke back to back but they still need this one to get their confidence where it needs to be heading down the stretch.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgia Tech has lost four in a row and doesn’t seem to be able to compete with the upper echelon of the ACC. I think Virginia qualifies as part of that group.
They do play defense though so perhaps they can slow things down enough to give themselves a chance.
Jose Alvarado was being leaned on a lot as a freshman. For four games in a row he played every minute and now he is out for the season. He was their top scorer.
Josh Okogie missed some earlier in the year and has been amazing over the last month. His per game averages were higher than Alvarado but now he really can’t afford to take any nights off.
