The No. 8 Louisville Cardinals look to keep their ACC regular season title hopes alive when the Hokies of Virginia Tech take the floor at the Yum! Center today at 1pm, the game can be seen on the ACC Network.
Virginia Tech (18-7, 7-6) enter the game today with their last two wins against Virginia in 2OT and at Pittsburgh, so the Hokies are riding a hot streak. They’re led by senior forward Zach Leday at 15.2 PPG. Other than Leday, the Hokies only floored on other positional player that wasn’t a guard against Pitt, so once again, the Cards will have to stop a guard oriented team.
Virginia Tech sacrifices a lot of size so their rebounding numbers are low (33.8 RPG to Louisville’s 40.3). They don’t play stellar defense and will likely have issues with turning the ball over today. Not enough VTech possessions=not enough chances to score=an easy Cardinal victory.
Louisville 86-Virginia Tech 70.
