Virginia Tech is out of the ACC but they were not one of their three #1 seeds. Therefore they have a sleeper quality to them.
Liberty definitely fits that mold though they are probably better than most people think. .
Virginia Tech Hokies
It is a never a good sign when folks are talking about your coach leaving but in the case of Buzz Williams it is about performance in a good way. What else can he accomplish at Virginia Tech?
The Hokies dominated in their first round win against Saint Louis, up by 22 at the half. They gave some back in the second but it was a solid win for this solid program.
When you start the tournament you want your best players to get comfortable. No worries there for Nickeil Alexander-Walker who scored 20 points.
Top big man Kerry Blackshear Jr. also was effective scoring 15 points. He was able to get himself to the line 12 times showing good amounts of aggressive play.
Underrate Liberty at your own risk. They were tied for the regular season title in the Atlantic Sun and then stunned Mississippi State in round one, coming back down the stretch.
Keys to the win against the Bulldogs were making 12 threes and outshooting the MSU at the free throw line. Those do not often go together.
Senior guard Caleb Homesley averages only 12ppg but he scored 30, shooting 5 for 11 from three in doing so. Needless to say hot shooting can down almost any opponent.
Liberty could definitely have a problem with the overall size and skill of the Hokies but they have had success against the Power Five this season, winning at UCLA.

Free Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Liberty Flames NCAAB Prediction:
The Hokies should be solid favourites for sure but Liberty is not going to give them the game.
VT in the Sweet Sixteen makes sense but we won’t know for sure if this is a good bet until the line comes out.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Liberty ATS
This one will be a fight but I worry there will not be a ton of value on either side.
