Virginia Tech Exorcises Some Demons vs. Boston College at Conte Forum



Greetings, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball fans.

Earlier this week, we blogged about the need for Virginia Tech to win at Boston College.  Here’s what we said:

Virginia Tech “does not have a good road record” (awful) at Boston College – we’re looking at a horrific 2-11 all time at Boston College.  In fact, in 2009 and 2011, I’d say that losing at Boston College put a major dent in Virginia Tech’s NCAA hopes those years.  Why is it so hard to win at Boston College?  I have no idea – many people say that that place is like a hypnosis forum where you are lulled to sleep as a player.  This can’t happen to Virginia Tech.

Today, Virginia Tech defeated Boston College by the score of 91-75.  This is only Virginia Tech’s third ever win on the road at Boston College.


Guess who has two of them?  Buzz Williams (h/t @HokieSports).

Losing to Boston College might have put the Hokies back on bubble – there might still have been a path to the NCAA tournament, but losing to a 200+ RPI team can sometimes kill the NCAA tournament dreams of another foe (look at Georgetown and their loss to Arkansas State).   But that didn’t happen – Virginia Tech defeated Boston College.  And, in the process:


What a weekend for the Hokies!!!
