White has got to play the 4 with Woodbury out and it's not good.
Great, now a dry spell and an offensive foul.
Lucky we're not down 10 due to that missed dunk. So far we are way overmatched here.
History not on our side in the ACC/BIG Challenge.
Can't see pulling this one out on the road.
Gotta come out with some intensity in the second half. Attack the basket every possession as VT just did. Get them some foul trouble. REBOUND.

White's shooting wrist is injured since Gardner-Webb game. Explains why he doesn't take too many shots but just dunks. Defense is needed badly. Woodbury was rested for most of second half, he was changing the game plan for VT. I hope Woodbury can play the whole second half with 2 fouls, he is affecting VT's game plan.
Blocking out has been a problem.
Yeah, for a few years. It should improve as Woodbury and Olaseni grow and improve their game.
I'm late to the party and damned disappointed you guys did not cheer the Hawks to a halftime lead!!! Well I guess we better settle in for a wild and wooly rally to a nice 10 point win in the second half. That can either be a final of Iowa +2 over VaTech, or Iowa +10 over VaTech. Either way, I am happy.

Not a good start
I'm afraid this one is over.
This game and the last one are eye opening in terms of how far we are from being a good team. Wow!
Well, this ain't pretty. Marble needs to get much more involved.
This is exactly what I was worrying about late in the first half. No scoring, sloppy set ups, turnovers
Yeah, which is why I told people to slow down when talking about where this team would go this year. They are still young
They look so much more comfortable when in transition.
Young teams make mistakes. Remember the Wichita St. game? They had a run right before half. Same with WKU. VT had a 10-1 run today. I expect that they'll figure it out, so I'm not really worried. Boxing out would help this team so much.
I like this zone.
Yeah they moving around well
Somehow this seems only fair. We missed our first 9 shots of the 2nd half. Then we made the next 7 shots. Another two and we are shooting 50% for the half and the game. Only seems right.

Come on Hawks -- stay in the game. Your pace.
It does for Xbox but it's blacked out for some reason on espn tonight. Watching on firstrow now.
Seems to me we have a bunch of really good players right now. But they are too young to know how to force the pieces together to make a coherent whole. When it comes of its own, they're fine. Otherwise, not so fine. As they play together more and more they will learn how to forge a win even when things don't go well.
I'm not enjoying the last 2 possessions. No reason for 3's right now.
Just as we are getting back in the game. Don't let it slip.
