Virginia Tech tips off the 2009-10 basketball season in just over a week, and
we still aren’t sure what starting lineup Seth Greenberg will put on the court
in the opener against Brown. Today we’ll cover some possible Virginia Tech
lineups for this season. Lineups could vary depending on matchups, and
information coming out of practice is scarce right now.  We’ll also take a
quick look at Virginia Tech’s early season schedule.

We’ll likely see two types of lineups from Virginia Tech this year: regular
lineups and small lineups. Let’s talk about the regular lineups first.

Regular Lineups

A regular lineup would consist of a point guard, two wings and two posts. The
two posts would have ideal size for interior players in the ACC. This is the
lineup that Virginia Tech will likely use for most of the season, but it could
vary from game to game depending on matchups.

One thing that Virginia Tech has generally lacked under Seth Greenberg is a
true point guard. This year, the Hokies finally have a true point guard in Erick
Green. Unfortunately, he’s only a freshman. He has been doing a good job in
practice so far, but does Seth Greenberg trust him enough to start him? No one
knows at this point. If Green is good enough to start as a freshman, that would
give the Hokies their ideal starting lineup. It would look something like this.
