Hokies Hold Destiny In Their Hands After Clutch Win Against Clemson

After Justin Wright's stellar pitching performance in the first round of the ACC Tournament, Virginia Tech looked to their offense to get them past the number two seed Clemson.

Scott Weisman, starting pitcher for Clemson, lasted only three innings after giving up five runs in the first inning to the Hokie bats.

Buddy "Hot-Sauce" Sosnoskie (I made up that nick-name for him, it just fits) went 2-3 with 3 huge RBI for Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech crushed four home-runs in the game against Clemson. Sean Ryan, Austin Wates, Buddy Sosnoskie and Andrew Rash all belted homers against the Tigers.

The starting pitcher for the Hokies was Matthew Price who went 4.1 innings while giving up three earned runs. Virginia Tech ace, Ben Rowen, came in during the eighth inning and pitched a scoreless 1.2 innings while getting the win.

Virginia Tech got the win against Clemson with a final score of 9-8. Virginia Tech moves to 2-0 in the ACC Tournament and with a win over NC State will play Florida State or Miami for the ACC Championship.

As a side note, this is Virginia Tech's first trip to the ACC Tournament since joining the ACC, and would be an excellent sign for the future if the Hokies won the ACC Championship.

Delaney To Stay For Senior Year

Great news came for the Virginia Tech men's basketball team yesterday as Malcolm Delaney announced that he would be returning for his senior year.

“I have decided to come back to Virginia Tech for my senior season,” Delaney said. “I learned that I would not have been a first round pick and I want to work hard to become a better basketball player. I am coming back because I have the opportunity to earn my degree at the end of the first semester and, I want to, along with my fellow seniors, help lead Virginia Tech to a Final Four."

Delaney was Virginia Tech's leading scorer last year and according to most reports, would not have been a first round draft pick. Delaney had declared for the draft but did not hire an agent so he could opt out of the draft and return for his senior year.
