Despite a poor offensive performance, ***ia managed to escape last night
with an important non-conference win against ***ia Tech, 61-57 in
double overtime.  Bryant Stith scored 24 points, 9 of which came in the
second overtime period. That nine included 2 three's and 3 of 4 free throws.
Jeff Jones said after the game "That's kind of what we've come to expect
from Bryant...That's the mark of a great player." ***ia shot only 33.3
percent and Tech shot 40.6 percent. Neither team really got anything going
and if it wasn't for 2 overtimes, ***ia would have tied it's worst
offensive performance of the year. Forward John Rivers led the Turkeys with
15. Jeffries scored a season high 12 for ***ia.  ***ia led 18-15 at
he half - Tech shot 29.2 percent, missed all 7 3-point attempts and 5 of
6 free throws. UVa wasn't much better - shooting 33 percent.

Sith came through in the clutch for UVa to keep our tournament hopes alive.
He played all 50 minutes of the game. Corey Alexander was a total non-factor
in the game - looks like his up and down performances continue. This was
***ia's 15th win against ***ia Tech in 18 meetings. The Cavaliers have
some time off before taking on FLorida State on Thursday, February 13 at
U-Hall.

what a night for upsets - and Va Tech almost got one.

a 4 point loss in double OT - thats a heartbreaker.

Bill Foster plays a real slow down game - most Va Tech games have
been very low scoring affairs.  Apparently taking a cue from the
VT fb teams of past, they have one of the top defensive games
and absolutely no offense to back it up.

still, this game was much closer than I expected.  But we still lost.
Va Tech slides to 7-11.

***ia looked pathetic out there. Looking at these ***ia 1st year
players, it makes me appreciate what kind of consistent player Bryant
Sttih was in his 1st year. Particularly Junior needs to get back to
earth soon. He still has pretty big head and in his interview in CD, he
was talking about opposing defenses keying on him once Stith leaves
next year. I very much doubt that if he continues to throw up either
bricks or airballs (that too from within 3-4 ft of basket) like he
has been doing consistently lately. With his size, he has potential to
dominate the low post but he needs to get rid of his unjustified
***iness first and start working on the shooting etc.

BTW, the women's game between #2 ***ia and #1 Maryland is indeed
on Tue Feb 11th and not on 12th as shown in the schedules printed
earlier.  ACC has finally given nod to HTS over ESPN to air the
game live at 7.30 pm on Tue.

I couldn't agree more. That's been their main problem all year. Watching
the game, you would have thought this was Corey Alexander's first
game. Both players continue to try and force bad shots when they face
any kind of defensive pressure at all. What worries me is that, in a
close game, Stith is the only player who can come through. Alexander
and Burrough don't yet have the confidence or the patience to lead
the team to a close win over a good team. What happens when Stith
leaves?  It's just a good thing Tech was even worse that night!

BTW, any news up there in the CD or the UJ about Cornel Parker? The papers
here said he left the team for "personal reasons". Suppossedly a meeting
was scheduled with Jeff Jones for yesterday or today.

That's unfornuate. I was hoping for ESPN. A larger audience would get
to see how good ACC women's basketball is. But, I can still watch the
game.

Nothing in the CD or the UJ. Noone knows what those personal reasons
are but he is expected to be back against the seminoles. The CD did
carry a series of 3 articles on Jones though. First about Jones at UVa,
Second about Jones as a coach and recruiter and the Third about future
of jones and ***ia basketball.

Yesterday on the UVa Basketball Coaches show, Jeff Jones said the
problems had been worked out and Parker would return Thursday. He
didn't elaborate further. I didn't realize that Parker had replaced
Oliver in the starting lineup for the 3 games prior to ***ia Tech.
Jones started First-yearman Derrick Johnson instead of putting Oliver
back in when Parker was out. Sounds like he's really down on Oliver.

Go Lady Cavaliers!
