Seth Greenberg's shot a good omen for the Hokies?

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Toward the end of Virginia Tech's practice on Wednesday afternoon, Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg stood at center court and drained a hook shot. And the crowd -- albeit a small one -- went wild.

"It's definitely an omen, are you kidding me?" Greenberg said to reporters after the practice. "Are you surprised I made that?"

Greenberg often attempts such half-court shots during the Hokies practices, according to some players. And he hasn't had any success so far this season.

"He’s been trying it forever," J.T. Thompson said. "It's crazy he waited till we got here that he made it."

Greenberg, as only he can, played the role of jester when asked about the improbable long-distance shot. The product of Farleigh Dickinson, in New Jersey, said he had the talent all along, even if his record this season would indicate otherwise.

"Quite honestly," Greenberg said, "I don’t think my college coach utilized me enough and took away a little bit of my game because obviously you saw my range."

A reporter noted that Greenberg seemed surprised by the made bucket. Quick with a witty retort, Greenberg said, "When you make a half-court shot are you surprised?"
