ACTUALLY, he did! His SENIOR LEADERSHIP and DEFENSIVE absence leaves a glaring hole against Virginia.
He was instrumental in holding Cavaliers star Mike Scott to just 10 points and six rebounds when Virginia Tech upset Virginia, 47-45, in Charlottesville last month.
For the Hokies, the responsibility of slowing down Scott this time will fall on the shoulders of sophomore Cadarian Raines and freshman C.J. Barksdale, who both filled in admirably for Davila against the Yellow Jackets. Raines, who Greenberg (VTech Coach) said needed two bags of IV administered before taking the floor to face Georgia Tech, played a season-high 37 minutes and scored a career-high 13 points. Barksdale, meanwhile, tied his career-high with eight points.
But face it man VTech was LUCKY to get that win against Georgia Tech the other night.
And think about it: Even though they won, Virginia Tech struggled to contain Georgia Tech’s big men on the defensive end, and Yellow Jackets Coach Brian Gregory said the Hokies’ lack of depth inside was “a point of emphasis.” Forward Kammeon Holsey had 18 points and five rebounds and center Daniel Miller added 11 points and nine rebounds.
The Yellow Jackets got 38 points in the paint and out-rebounded Virginia Tech 32-18
This is why Virginia's Mike Scott should be in BEAST MODE tonight!
PLUS, revenge factor for this game.
But you go ahead and take VTech - we'll see who wins.
