Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech became the first team to beat Virginia at John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday. It became the first team to beat Virginia in ACC play this season and ended the Cavaliers’ 15-game winning streak.
It was a doozy. The Hokies built a big lead in the middle of the first half when they started raining threes over the Virginia defense all while UVA went cold on the offensive end.
Back and forth it went in the second half before Ty Jerome tied the game and just missed a game-winner on the next possession.
Tech got down in overtime but took advantage of some missed Virginia free throws in the final 30 seconds to make a game-winning layup with five seconds to go.
Beating Virginia may or may not be more difficult than beating Duke but it’s certainly different. Duke will overwhelm you with talent where the Cavaliers won’t. I’m not sure VT is ready for it.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke took care of Georgia Tech over the weekend. It got a game closer in the ACC with UVA’s loss but there isn’t any question the Cavaliers will win the regular season title.
The Blue Devils have games at Clemson and versus North Carolina, among a few other testers, and then the ACC Tournament to prove that they are a #1 seed. It will be tough to do but it’s still possible.
Of course, the main goal is just getting the team fit to make a run in March. The talent is all there but it’s a matter of locking down on defense and then moving the ball a little more on offense.
I do think Duke will see a significant jump when it bears down on defense, which I believe it can do. The offensive movement is a problem that may not solve itself between now and March, though.
Tough defense and iso ball with supreme athletes may have to carry Duke to the Final Four this season. It isn’t ideal but it isn’t impossible to imagine, either.
