BC-VT Tonight: So it all comes down to this...
Win and you have a good chance at getting in, lose and you are NIT. That's the situation that faces BC tonight.
VT comes into their senior night riding high after upsetting Duke on Saturday night. A win that propably takes them off the bubble and into the field of 68. BC enters the game on the wrong side of the bubble after losing to Miami on Wednesday, but beating Virginia on Saturday. Most bracketology sites have BC as one of the first four teams out.
So here we are. A road victory over team who just defeated the number one team in the nation would be very appealing to Bracketologists and most importantly, the tournament committee. To say the least, it will not be the easiest thing we have done this year. The Hokies are led by seniors Malcolm Delaney and Jeff Allen, who will be playing their final game at home and will want to go out with a bang. Cassell Coliseum will also be rocking after the win against Duke. We have not won at VT since 2006. That being said, we have defeated the Hokies and we have a chance, if we play our best game, to come out of Blacksburg with a win.
It is the biggest game of the season and I just hope the guys realize that and play their hearts out.
