Undefeated No More: Wednesday Night Recap

In case you haven’t heard yet, Seth Greenberg really had his Virgina Tech squad ready to go last night as they upset Wake Forest last night 78-71.

*Teams play more games
Today’s game is just so different that I don’t think it’s realistic to believe that there will be another undefeated team for quite some time.

That’s significantly higher than the 0% chance I give them every other season.

Speaking of streaks…UNC dominated Clemson 94-70 last night. Clemson is now 0-54 Continue reading
