Hokies Defeat Georgia Bulldogs 74-62 in Blacksburg

The Essentials

The Game

The Hokies held Georgia scoreless for the first five minutes of this game while starting on a 5-0 run.  However, Georgia battled back and thanks to a few Leslie Travis layups, the Bulldogs found themselves tied with the Hokies at the eight minute mark at 18 apiece.  But the Hokies used a nice 18-9 run over that last eight minutes to head into the half with a fairly commanding nine point lead.  The 2nd half was more of the same for Greenberg's bunch as Tech jumped out to as much as a 15 point lead before seeing it shrivel down to seven with just six minutes left to go in the half.  The Hokies rallied once more and went on a 10-2 run and was able to put the game out of reach with just over three minutes left.  Delaney missed a three-pointer with just a few seconds left and the shot clock running down but Tech had already wrapped up the 74-62 victory.


Up Next:  VMI (12/09) - Blacksburg, VA

The Hokies are off to their best start under Seth Greenberg as Tech is currently scored at 6-1 on the year.  But, if the Hokies want to stay on this positive win streak they are going to have to defeat a strong and tough opponent in the high-scoring VMI Keydets.  VMI knocked off Kentucky last year so they have the ability to come into somebody else's place and ruin the afterparty.

The game isn't televised but if you have a ticket, head to Cassell Coliseum on Wednesday and cheer on the Hokies.
