Sat.'s Game of the Day

Virginia Tech 70 Georgia Tech 69

B.J. Elder sits out again, but the Hokies play without fear on the Jackets' home court. You know what I saw? An athletic team that was quick to the ball and dominant on the offensive glass while simultaneously playing sound, fundamental basketball. V-Tech took good shots and played tight defense. They won the game, G-Tech didn't lose it, in spite of Isma'l Muhammad's missed free throws at the end.

Seth Greenberg acknowledges Elder's absence:

"If Elder plays, it's probably a different game."

Zabian McDowell:

"If we play hard and you try to make the first punch, teams are going to back down. We just wanted to let the world know that we can play, too."
