Virginia Tech host 'blackout' for Virginia game
In the lot outside Cassell Coliseum, I parked next to a car with a license plates that said "NoHoos." Yep, this is the Virginia Tech-Virginia rivalry.
And to take the Hokies meeting with the Cavaliers here a step further, Cassell Coliseum will host a "blackout" for the in-state rivals' second meeting of this season.
With about a half hour until tip-off in Blacksburg, Virginia Tech's players traded warm-up jackets for black T-shirts. Many in the student section are warming the same T-shirts, which are being sold on the concourses at the arena. There's only a smattering of black T-shirt, however, among the general admissions crowd.
Virginia Tech defeated Virginia in overtime on Jan. 28 in Charlottesville in a thrilling affair. The Cavaliers (14-7, 5-3) enter Saturday night's game looking for some revenge against the Hokies (19-4, 6-3), who are hoping to keep alive their hopes for an NCAA tournament
