ABOUT VIRGINIA TECH (7-1): The Hokies have five double-digit scorers and are averaging 96.8 points - tops in the nation - while shooting 54.6 percent from the field and a staggering 44.9 percent from the arc.

Kerry Blackshear was 11-for-11 from the free throw line. The Hokies made 25 of 31 from the line against the Highlanders and have made at least 20 free throws in eight of nine games this season.
Besides the 20 points, Blackshear finished with six rebounds, but perhaps the most important stat was that he was a flawless 11/11 from the foul line.
Bibbs was absolutely spectacular tonight, shooting 8 of 10 from the floor and 4 of 5 from three-point range to score 20 points.
"We're always taking flawless shots, everybody was coming off the screens hard and everybody was moving without the ball really well", said Virginia Tech forward, Kerry Blackshear, Jr. "I thought that, right from the beginning, their first 14 points, 11 of them were because of transition, so they were able to get out and do what they do best - which is push the ball in transition". It is his fifth double figures game of the season. His nine assists were his most this season and only second all-time in his own personal stat book behind his 11 assists last season at Boston College. Bibbs and Blackshear led the team in scoring, but a few other players still contributed. It's the fourth time this season that at least two Virginia Tech players scored at least 20 points in the same game.
"This was our first game with zero, what we deem, bad shots", Williams said. RU shot 40.7 percent from the field in the half.
