No doubt this is a big game for PSU. If we win, we have an excellent chance to finish the non conference schedule with a 9-3 record.
Va Tech looks like a solid team, but their 7-1 record is a little soft. They have a nice win over Georgia at home. They also beat Iowa. They’ve lost one game: 71-60 at Temple on Nov. 27th.
They seem to be a lot like us - good guards and forwards with no big dominating center.
The keys for us will be what they always are: play good defense, rebound and run. If we can do these things with what is looking to be a good crowd, we can win. The crowd can definitely make a difference here.
This is the kind of game that Talor loves: national TV audience on ESPN2, quality opponent and a good crowd. I think if we can keep it close for 35 minutes, then it will be Talor time.
