Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg plans to let his players improvise more this season.

Is this wise? Many fans feel today's college basketball players don't show good judgment as it is. Gunning three-pointers during inappropriate situations. Going for the alley-oop slam when a layup would do. Taking it to the hoop themselves instead of passing on a two-on-one break.

Greenberg's rationale: The Hokies are going to see defense like they've never seen it during their first season in the ACC.

"If they spend (time with) one eye on me and one eye on the game, this league is like a shark," Greenberg told the Roanoke Times. "They're going to smell blood."
