Here we go again, terrified UVA fans! Where are you right now? Are you sitting in the exact spot you've been sitting for the past nine games? Wearing the same underwear? Eating the same delicious cookie dough oreos?

I'm OK if UVA loses a game before March Madness, because I think it will help ground the team to refocus before the craziness starts. I do not, however, want it to be tonight. Or against Maryland. In fact, let's just win out the season and lose the first game of the ACC tournament to get the couple extra days of rest, yeah?

Anywho, Virginia Tech does not tend to force many turnovers (opponents turning over 13.2%, 348th (out of 351) in the country), nor do they steal the ball often (5.2%, or 349th in the country).

I don't think I need to go too much into the numbers here -- we all know the VT story this season. Virginia just needs to keep working their game, with a focus on getting up big early on, to put out any hope the Hokies may have. A slow start could give the Hokies what they need to take this game on their own home court.

Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
