2/12 – CBB – Virginia at Virginia Tech

Virginia (18-5, 8-3 ACC) is all about defense and they showed it in their 1st meeting of the season with Virginia Tech (16-7, 5-6) handing the Hokies a 71-48 defeat.

This time, Virginia Tech is the home team and they are hoping for a reversal of fortune as they sport a 12-1 record at Cassell Coliseum.  The Hokies have a balanced attack with 5 players averaging in double figures, led by F Zach Delay (15.7).

Because of their deliberate style and stifling defense (54.0 ppg) the Cavaliers leading scorer, G London Perrantes averages just 12.2 ppg.  The only Cav in double figures.

I've got this one rated UVA -9.2, so at -7 I feel comfortable laying a unit.  The Hokies will likely keep it relatively close, but the Cavaliers should be able to pull away at the end enough to cover.

Good luck, players!
