Virginia Tech has just one loss to Charleston so far. Otherwise the wins have come over Delaware State, Lehigh, William & Mary, Old Dominion, Penn State, Charleston Southern, Minnesota, North Carolina, Dayton, Oklahoma State and Grambling State. 

Matched up against Grambling State on Saturday, the Hokies didn’t have too much trouble. Virginia Tech was up 34-25 by halftime and cruised to the win 74-48. Sean Pedulla led the team with his 21 points and six assists. 

Over on the Boston College side, they’ve managed victories over Cornell, Detroit, George Mason, Wyoming, Rhode Island and Stonehill. The six losses were to Maine, Tarleton State, Nebraska, Duke, New Hampshire and Villanova. 

Last Tuesday in the Stone hill game, the Eagles went into the break up 35-26. Boston College was outscored 30-28 from there but still won 63-56. Leading scorer Jaeden Zackery managed 16 points with three rebounds and three assists.

PICK: I’ll lean toward Virginia Tech in this one. The Hokies put together another nice win over Grambling State in their last game, shooting 51 percent from the floor, going 40.7 percent from 3-point range (11-of-27) and snagging 31 rebounds. Virginia Tech has managed 70 or more points in four straight games; the Hokies should post a good total here as well. As for Boston College, they got a much-needed win over Stonehill in their last game but didn’t look great doing it. The Eagles are just 1-4 over their last five outings, scoring 67 or fewer points in four of those. I don’t think they’ll stick around for long in this game.
