It wasn’t the prettiest game or the best matchup of the year, but Virginia and Virginia Tech provided one of college basketball’s most entertaining games of the regular season.
Duke’s last two non-conference games of the year should have been cupcakes. But the Blue Devils were all over the place and struggled against both Tennessee State and Elon, trailing in the second half in both games before getting their shit together and taking the two victories.
Blacksburg, Va. police arrested a second Virginia Tech student today, claiming 19-year-old Natalie Keepers helped David Eisenhauer dispose of Nicole Lovell’s body after the Hokies track athlete allegedly murdered the middle-schooler this week.
Virginia Tech came back and put up 17 points in the fourth quarter today to defeat Virginia and earn bowl eligibility for the 23rd straight year. Frank Beamer will now get one more game before Justin Fuente takes over as coach of the Hokies next year.
Today is Frank Beamer’s last home game for Virginia Tech, but #17 North Carolina is just now starting to pull away in the fourth quarter.

This poor little girl sitting next to Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer is sobbing uncontrollably, possibly because she has been seated next to Frank Beamer. Never forget:
Girls, girls, you're both 5-6.
Fellas! There's a person under there! Watch yourselves.
Blue Devils football, heretofore a model of futility, managed to roll into Blacksburg, Va., today and slip past a Virginia Team that was favored by almost two touchdowns.
