The Virginia Tech Hokies have had some tough losses this season as they have played BYU, Dayton, and Duke, but they should have no problem blowing the doors open on Chattanooga. The Hokies are extremely young under 1st-year coach Mike Young, but freshman guard Landers Nolley II has shouldered most of the production for the Hokies as he is averaging 18.6 PPG and 5.4 RPG. The biggest question for Chattanooga will be if they can match Virginia Tech on the scoreboard as they rank 223rd in points scored, but that will be tough on the road for the Mocs. Expect Virginia Tech to avenge their Duke loss with a big win at home. Final Score Prediction, Virginia Tech Hokies win and cover ATS 75-59.
