Virginia Tech counts down until Duke game

It's Saturday, so that means we're just one day from Virginia Tech's showdown with Duke. Here's some reading.

The Sporting News has a Q&A with Hokie guard Malcolm Delaney, who is leading the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring because he can score in a number of different ways. "So when you can do it in so many ways," Delaney said of his scoring ability, "it's hard for teams to shut me down."

USA Today highlights Virginia Tech as one of the biggest stories of the weekend in college basketball. As noted in the piece, the Hokies are looking to add credibility to their NCAA tournament push and "could erase all doubts about their postseason résumé with a win Sunday night at No. 6 Duke, which has won 16 in a row at Cameron Indoor Stadium."

Duke is looking to defend that home-court advantage against a Hokies team that has surprised people in the ACC. "This year, as an older, veteran group, you really feel that much more pride and wanting to not lose at home," Blue Devil guard Jon Scheyer said. "I think we’ve done a better job of handling the game situation at home than away from Cameron just because it’s a little easier to communicate.”
