I thought we got all of this out during football season. However, watching this year's Hokies hoops team can be just as hazardous to your health as watching the 2008 edition of the football team.
Every meaningful game for the basketball team has come down to the wire. And more often than not, the Hokies have failed to come away with a win. After winning two close games on the road against then-No. 1 Wake Forest and Miami, Tech dropped another heart breaker last night against Clemson after leading by 15 in the second half.
It's important the Hokies pick themselves up starting tomorrow at BC. Tech's next six games are very winnable before it gets a second shot at Clemson. I think the Hokies can go 5-1 over their next six and be 9-3 going into the Clemson game on Feb. 25.
Don't discount the importance of these next six games. Because of the difficulty of the Hokies' last four, this group of games will make or break Tech as a Tournament team. If the Hokies struggle, they will have a hard time making the field of 65.
