The last four conference games have been close games against tough opponents, and that should be expected to continue for this year's Battle of the Techs.
The Hokies feature an offense that is 76.8 points per game and giving up 71 points per game. The team as a whole is shooting 44.9 percent from the floor.
Far and away, the Hokies' best player is redshirt junior Zach LeDay. He leads the team with 15.2 points per game while shooting 47.5 percent from the floor. He's also the team's best rebounder at 9.1 rebounds per game. In addition to all of those, he also leads the Hokies in free throw percentage (77.2 percent), blocks (23) and steals (13).
Joining LeDay on the Hokies is sophomore Justin Bibbs. Bibbs is the main reason that the Hokies are not missing Adam Smith. Bibbs has been fantastic from the 3-point line, shooting 40-for-72 (55.6 percent). Adam Smith is 60-for-130 (46.2 percent) from the 3-point line.
Joining these two in the starting lineup for the Hokies will be sophomore Jalen Hudson (7 ppg || 39.2 percent shooting || 13 steals), senior Shane Henry (2.1 ppg || 44.8 percent shooting || 2.8 rpg) and redshirt junior Seth Allen (13.3 ppg || 37.3 percent shooting || 22-of-83 from 3-point line).
