The Virginia Tech Hokies and Virginia Cavaliers will ignite an old-fashioned, ACC rivalry Saturday as both teams look for a signature victory and bragging rights.
After a slow start to the season, Virginia has looked like a completely different team of late. The Cavaliers have not lost a game in conference play and have dropped only one game to an elite Gonzaga team since their early season blemish to San Francisco.
Virginia Tech continues to defy expectations year in and year out under coach Mike Young. The Hokies have started off ACC play 6-2 following a double-digit victory against Notre Dame January 27. Virginia Tech as earned quality victories over Villanova and Clemson this season.
While Virginia is normally known for their elite defense, the Cavaliers have put together a great offensive season. Virginia is averaging 73.4 PPG while sporting the seventh most efficient offense in the nation.
The Cavaliers have been shooting lights out this season. As a team, they are shooting 39.6 percent from deep, 80.5 percent from the line and have the fifth lowest turnover rate in the nation.
Marquette transfer Sam Hauser has given this offense a major boost. He is averaging 15 PPG, 7.4 RPG and shoots 43 percent from deep. Senior forward Jay Huff has been excellent in his own right, averaging 13 points and 7 rebounds a game on 46 percent from distance.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech will look to win its first game against Virginia since 2018. The Hokies are also dealing with an unfortunate news of Tyrece Radford being kicked off the team due to issues off the court. Radford averaged 11 PPG and 6.3 RPG.
Despite winning their last game without Radford, the Hokies will be dealing with a much tougher test against the Cavaliers. The Hokies have the 57th best offense in the country according to KenPom. The Hokies average 72.5 PPG and allow 64.7 PPG.
Defensively, the Hokies have been strong this season. They rank just inside the top-100 in opponents field goal percentage, 39th in rebounding and allow opponents to shoot just 31.9 percent from deep.
Transfer Keve Aluma leads the team with 13.9 PPG and 7.4 RPG. Two other double digit scorers are Nahiem Alleyne with 10.8 PPG and Jalen Cone with 10.3 PPG.
- Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
- Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win.
- Cavaliers are 22-10-1 ATS in their last 33 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
- Hokies are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
Free Virginia Cavaliers vs. Virginia Tech Hokies NCAAB Prediction:
Virginia Tech has once again exceeded expectations this season. That being said, Virginia is a much better team and the loss of Radford will be felt in this one for the Hokies. I don’t see the Hokies being able to stop the Cavaliers 3-point attack. On top of all this, Virginia Tech fouls frequently and the Cavaliers don’t miss a lot of free throws. Take UVA to cover.
