Virginia Tech Hokies

The Hokies are 17-7 and sit in 8th place in the ACC. According to Joe Lunardi they are currently slated as an eight seed for the NCAA Tournament.
The Hokies specialty is on the offensive side of the ball.
They really like to push the pace up and down the court. They average 79.2 points per game and shoot 48.4 percent from the field.
Virginia Tech can not use this game as a trap game. Even though they are comfortably in, they need to finish the season strong to make sure they get in the Big Dance.
They need to push the pace in this game. They are the better team but to win they need to be the team dictating the tempo.
The Pittsburgh Panthers had a very successful season up until conference play. Once they entered conference play they have gone 3-9. They however are coming into this game on a two game wining streak.
Their last win was an 80-75 victory over the streaking Syracuse Orange. The Pitt Panthers have a lot of issues on the defensive side of the ball.
The Panthers average 76.7 points per game on the offensive end of the ball. On the defensive side of the ball they give up 76.9 points per game. It’s never a good thing when you average giving up more points then you score.
The Panthers are led by Senior forward Michael Young. He averages 20.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.
For the Panthers to win Young needs to have a big game. Pittsburgh also needs to play better on the defensive side of the ball and try and slow down the pace.
