Just write it off as a bad night as the football team, the women’s and men’s basketball teams all literally dropped the ball in discouraging losses.
The Hokies turned the ball over 24 times and shot just 38.6 percent in a 52-49 loss to the Richmond Spiders.
How important is hoop in Blacksburg? The Virginia Tech radio network did not carry the game choosing to air an Orange Bowl pregame show on its stations instead. Perhaps they knew something?
Tech (8-6) is now 2-5 in games decided by six or fewer points.
