Virginia Tech loses at Duke

It's Monday so here's some reading to start off the week.

Virginia Tech is coming off its 67-55 loss at No. 6 Duke. The Hokies had a good start in the first half but were unable to finish the job in Durham.

"The loss ended Tech's five-game winning streak," David Teel of the Newport News daily Press writes, "yet also enhanced its NCAA tournament credentials. Yes, the selection committee considers how you lost, and unlike most at Cameron Indoor Stadium this season, the Hokies (21-5, 8-4) remained a threat until the waning minutes."

But Virginia Tech did not take the loss lightly. Even if it was a forgivable loss, the Hokies saw their frustration boil over in the loss at Duke. Virginia Tech's Dorenzo Hudson and Duke's Nolan Smith got into what appeared to be a "minor verbal spat after both teams battled for a loose ball and tied it up in the lane. Hudson took it to another level when he placed his left hand in Smith's face to push Smith away."
