Robinson helps Virginia Tech stun No. 2 Virginia

No. 2 Virginia (23-2, 12-1 ACC) lost, 61-60, to Virginia Tech (18-7, 7-5 ACC) on Saturday night in a game that could have given the Cavaliers the nation's top ranking. You need to use your bench more, and you need to attack the paint more, and if you don't, and play your C-minus game against an NCAA Tournament team, and your 93.4 percent fifth-year senior free-throw shooter misses the front end of a 1-and-1, you're going to lose by one.

"We played hard. That's all we focused on since we played and lost to Miami".

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Kendall Smith and Cameron McGriff each scored 20 points and Oklahoma State beat another ranked team on the road, topping West Virginia. They felt good coming off my hand. And that was just the last three games.

Beating Virginia at home is surprising in itself, but Virginia was very un-Virginia-like in the final few minutes after forcing overtime.

Three minutes later, the Hokies scored six straight points and grabbed a 62-59 lead on a free throw by Rachel Camp with 1:41 left in the game.

At that moment, it was fair to make the case that this team was not beatable.

Robinson had a game-high 20 points to lead the Hokies, who shot 57.1 percent in the first half, when they led by as many as 12 points, and 28.6 percent in the second half. They are won of the most unsafe offensive teams in the country, and the Cavaliers-despite being 12-point favorites-shouldn't overlook their rivals. "Learn from our mistakes".

It certainly wasn't ideal for UVa to lose this game at this time. That said, this game was only big for its hype rather than its importance. They're also on pace for a No. 1 regional NCAA tournament seed. Ty Jerome made both baskets for the Cavaliers, and the sophomore had a chance to win with a three-pointer from National Basketball Association distance - well within his range - but the shot bounced off the front iron as the buzzer sounded in regulation. A simple look at Saturday's box score would show the script was flipped. He made just 5 of his 21 attempts, including only 3 of his 14 3-point tries.

What Buzz Williams said after Virginia Tech's epic upset at Virginia

Robinson led the Hokies with 20 points and seven assists, and Nickeil Alexander-Walker had 12 points. This was a different team than the one Virginia crushed on its home court. That's a statement that has been true ever since Tony Bennett took over as head coach, but the Cavaliers' pack-line D is on another level this season. "They really flooded and jammed the lane".

"In my opinion, it's an incredible credit, and it speaks to the fiber and character of our guys, that in early February they were willing to accept what we were saying and figure out a way to be accountable in what we had to do". They forced us to take some tough shots, late into the shot clock.

This defense isn't just good. Alexander made consecutive three-pointers after the stoppage, and Wilson added a third in a three-point barrage contributing to a 17-0 run for a 22-13 lead.

Saturday's game might have tested that belief. It happened Saturday, when the Cavaliers shot just 29 percent (11 for 38) behind the arc, well below their season standard of 39 percent. "He will be in the hall of fame long before his career is over", Williams said as he heaped praise upon the Cavs. "Excuse the language, but you can quote me on that".

It was not a particularly good offensive performance for either team. He finished the game with 7 points and six rebounds, playing 43 of the 45 total minutes.

He continued to shoot, even as he continued to miss.

At John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Virginia Tech men's basketball team won arguably their biggest game in Buzz Williams' four years over rival and second-ranked Virginia 61-60.
