Duke Crushes Virginia Tech on Senior Night in ACC Battle

Scott PolacekFeatured Columnist IVNovember 6, 2016

On senior night in Cameron Indoor Stadium, Duke got all it could handle from lowly Virginia Tech for about 35 minutes.

Eventually, the Blue Devils pulled away and defended home court to the tune of 85-57. It kept alive their faint hopes for a co-ACC championship, but Miami would have to lose its final two games.

As for Virginia Tech, it was the same old story. Erick Green, the nation’s leading scorer, had his way against Duke’s defense and ended up with 25 points, but it was nowhere near enough. The Hokies have had a season to forget.

The victors tonight looked like one of the nation’s elite teams once again with the return of Ryan Kelly. How far Duke goes in March is yet to be determined, but chances are it won’t be losing to the likes of Lehigh again this year.
