Hokies Celebrate Senior Night With Win Over NC State

Hokie Nation said goodbye tonight to the two seniors on the men's basketball team. Lewis Witcher and Paul Debnam were honored before the game began and both got the nod to start their final home game.

The first half was incredibly slow with NC State putting up only 22 points. At the half Virginia Tech had a nine point lead.

The second half was much more energetic with Virginia Tech making their only three-pointers during the half. At one point during the second half, head coach Seth Greenberg actually had to pump the crowd up. It was odd to see on my end but the crowd lit up instantly.

Almost 85 percent of Virginia Tech's points were from three players: Malcolm Delaney with 21, Jeff Allen with 18 and Dorenzo Hudson with 21.

Late in the second half with the game nearly wrapped up, Paul Debnam was put back into the game shortly after an emphatic chant of "We want Paul!" began. Debnam not only fouled out Scott Wood for NC State, but he also got his only point of the night from a free throw; both sent the crowd roaring.

Virginia Tech snaps a three-game losing streak: 71-59

Virginia Tech moves to 22-7 on the season and 9-6 in ACC play while NC State falls to 16-14 on the season and 4-11 in ACC play.
