Hokies get big win for NCAA tournament resume

What a weekend. There was a blizzard. There was a big win for Virginia Tech. And there was some professional football game on Sunday night. Now here's some reading to make sense of it.

The Hokies' victory over Clemson was a important because it gave them their first win of the season over a team ranked in the top 50 of the Rating Percentage Index. David Teel of the Newport News Daily Press writes that VirginiaVir Tech has the look of an NCAA tournament team. Teel says that the meeting with the Tigers was "an opportunity for the Hokies to announce their aspirations and to become accustomed to the NCAA tournament routine."

Virginia Tech travels to Raleigh, N.C., to take on North Carolina State on Wednesday night. The Wolfpack is coming off of a foiled upset bid against Georgia Tech, which held off N.C. State on Saturday to score a 73-71 win in Atlanta.

While the college basketball season is really heating up, college football can never be ignored in Blacksburg. Norm Wood of the Newport News Daily Press offers a report card on Virginia Tech's 2010 recruiting class, which became official on Wednesdays national signing day. Wood gave the Hokies an A-minus for the class.
