I don't follow VT basketball too closely, but how does an ACC school start 5-0 and not get a single top 25 vote in either poll?  I guess this spoils Maui's plans for a Kansas-MSU final.   Good chance for 3 Virginia teams in the top 25 next week.

If Landers Nolley had been eligible last year they would have made the final four. VT lost almost its whole team from last year when Buzz left.  I think many were skeptical an older coach like Mike Young could step up in the ACC and recruit but he seems to have done OK.  They have some good players coming next year also.

Because four of those wins were against no-name opponents with a combined record of 6-22.  Besides, CBB rankings mean nothing in November.  Good win for them tonight, though.

Yes. Also they were picked to be at or near the bottom of the ACC.

 Back to reality for the Hokies. Dayton looks like a very good team. Should be two good games with VCU.

Duke loses to Stephen F Austin.  :shock:
