Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech got through the non-conference with just one loss (by one point @PSU) but didn’t collect any real big wins, either. The Hokies beat Purdue and Washington in their two best non-conference victories.
They have started lightly in the ACC but won all three: vs. Notre Dame, vs. BC and at Georgia Tech. This will be a big step up, however.
The defensive numbers, like Virginia’s, are impressive. Tech has allowed the fewest 2-point attempts and makes in the country; the same goes for free throws, both attempts and makes.
That means the Hokies are getting opponents to take a lot of unwanted 3-pointers because opponents are shooting a lot of them and at just 32 percent. This will be the most disciplined offense they have seen this season, though.
Virginia beat Wisconsin and won at Maryland in the non-conference, as well as beating VCU in the in-state showdown. The Cavaliers have started ACC play unbeaten with double-digit wins against FSU and at Boston College and Clemson.
The Cavaliers haven’t lost and their run has earned them the top spot in the Coaches Poll. Virginia still lags behind Duke, Michigan and Tennessee in the AP.
The only defensive statistic the Cavaliers aren’t elite in is takeaways. They don’t force a lot of turnovers, nor do they hardly ever give it away on offense.
Otherwise, Virginia is elite everywhere, opponents’ shooting percentages and scoring, defensive rebounding, etc. Opponents are shooting under 33 percent against the Cavaliers’ defense on the season.
