Hokies travel to Radford
Tech, Highlanders meet in Dedmon Center

Virginia Tech travels across the New River to face Radford on Wednesday night. The game, scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip, will be played at the Dedmon Center on the RU campus.

About Tonight’s Game

The Hokies enter tonight’s game 5-3 on the season ... Radford is 5-4 on the season and 1-1 in Big South Conference games.

Last Time Out: VT 80, UAPB 45

The Hokies returned to the win column on Saturday afternoon, as they downed Arkansas-Pine Bluff, 80-45, in Cassell Coliseum ... Tech jumped out to a big early lead and never trailed in the game ... Jalen Hudson led five Hokies in double figures, with 15 points ... Zach LeDay recorded his fifth double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds ... Tech held the Golden Lions to just 28.8 percent from the floor.

Series Against The Highlanders

This is the ninth meeting between the schools, with the Hokies holding a 6-2 lead ... Radford defeated the Hokies, 68- 66, in Cassell Coliseum last season ... This is the Hokies’ first game against Radford in the Dedmon Center … The Hokies are 37-6 all-time against current members of the Big South Conference.

Here Once Before

While this is the first time the Hokies and Highlanders have met in the Dedmon Center, it is not the first game for Tech in this facility ... On Jan. 13, 1996, the Hokies defeated La Salle, 71-55, on this court ... Due to a roof issue at Cassell Coliseum, Tech was forced to move one game to Radford and another, a 79-71 win over George Washington, to the Roanoke Civic Center.

Gimme That!

In the Hokies’ win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Jalen Hudson earned the start and then posted a career high

five steals in the contest ... That is the most steals in a game by a Hokie since Erick Green had five steals in a win over Mount St. Mary’s in Cassell Coliseum on Jan. 2, 2011 ... Hudson also led the Hokies in scoring with 15 points against the Golden Lions.

Bibbs Leads the Way

Following his four-forfour performance from three-point range in the Hokies’ win over UAPB, Justin Bibbs leads the ACC in three-point field goal percentage, at 65.5 percent ... He has made 19 of his 29 attempts this season and now shoots 46.6 percent from three for his Virginia Tech career ... He falls just under the NCAA minimum in order to be ranked nationally.
