Virginia Tech basketball ranked in preseason coaches' poll

The Virginia Tech men's basketball team will begin the season ranked No. 23 in the preseason coaches poll, which was released Thursday by USA Today. It is the same ranking that the Hokies' football team currently has in both the AP and coaches poll.

Defending national champion Duke was tabbed as the No. 1 team in the country, earning 29 of the 31 possible first-place votes. The rest of the top five (in order) are Michigan State, Kansas State, Pittsburgh and Ohio State. Purdue, who the Hokies will face on Dec. 1 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge this year, was ranked No. 8.

The only other ACC team that earned a preseason ranking was North Carolina, which was slotted at No. 9. Other ACC teams receiving votes in the initial poll were Florida State, North Carolina State and Maryland.
