Seth Greenberg

The team has worked hard all season to get where they are today. They’ve
shown a tremendous amount of leadership and poise.

Tech had two players named All-ACC. Malcolm Delaney was a first team player,
and he’ll have a display set up in the new practice facility to honor him.
Dorenzo Hudson is a third team player, and he’s come a long way from last
season.

Jeff Allen’s shoulder is doing better. Dorenzo Hudson will not practice until
the team arrives in Greensboro on Wednesday.

Cadarian Raines does not have a torn labrum. “Dr. Allan Chaney”,
who suffered a torn labrum in the preseason, thought that might be the case.
However, an MRI proved that wrong.

Virginia Tech had their best walk through of the season in their hotel before
the Georgia Tech game. They took over the ballroom and the players got a lot
accomplished.

Despite it being such a physical game, the Hokies never lost their composure
against the Yellow Jackets. In the past, they might have had a few guys come
unglued.

Except for his lime green sweater, Dorenzo Hudson did a great job on the
bench against Georgia Tech. He really helped Manny Atkins.

The Hokies have had a lot of success at Georgia Tech since joining the ACC.
As usual, there were a lot of Hokies in attendance. Manny Atkins had a big group
of family and friends there to see him make his first start. It’s tough making
your first start in front of so many familiar people, but Manny did a great job.

Ben Boggs showed great dedication in coming back from his broken leg.
Remember, he only played in a few games as a senior in high school before being
injured. It’s not surprising that he made the ACC All-Academic team.

Seth Greenberg’s top five wins of the season: 5) Delaware, because that
overtime win helped Tech avoid a bad loss; 4) at NC State, because Seth was
tired of people saying Tech couldn’t win there; 3) at UVA because of the great
comeback; 2) Wake Forest; 1) Georgia Tech.

The Hokies could potentially get some Nike throwback jerseys for next season.

Tech will play the winner of Miami-Wake Forest on Friday at about 2:30pm.
Miami will likely use a 2-3 zone against the Demon Deacons, trying to force Wake
to beat them from the outside. Despite their height on the inside, Greenberg
thinks Wake is tougher to defend when they go with a small lineup because they
have more athletes and better scorers on the floor.

Dorenzo Hudson is Tech’s inbounder, and it’s a difficult job. It hurt Tech to
not have him inbounding against Georgia Tech.

Monday was Day 1,927 of Virginia Tech’s continuous possession of the Commonwealth Cup.
