What Worked

Congratulations to the Virginia Tech Hokies on their victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels! This was a great game and both teams played their hearts out. Here is a look at what worked for the Hokies in this game.

The Virginia Tech offense was firing on all cylinders in this game. Quarterback Michael Vick was able to make plays with his arm and his legs, and the offensive line gave him time to throw. The Hokies also did a good job of running the ball, which kept the Tar Heels defense honest.

The Virginia Tech defense was solid throughout the game, and they made some big plays when they needed to. They were able to pressure Tar Heels quarterback Chris Keldorf into some bad throws, and they came up with a big stop late in the game to seal the victory.

What Didn’t Work

In the end, there were too many turnovers and not enough stops on defense. For all the talk of how good Virginia Tech’s offense is, it couldn’t get going against North Carolina. The Hokies shot just 41 percent from the field and scored a season-low 66 points.

defensively, Virginia Tech gave up 10 3-pointers and allowed North Carolina to shoot 48 percent from the field. The Tar Heels also had 22 points off turnovers, which was too much to overcome.


What the Players Said

After the big game, the players had a lot to say. Here are some quotes from the post-game press conference:

“It was a great game and we’re really happy to have won. We played our hearts out and we’re just thrilled to be victorious.” – Virginia Tech player

“We gave it our all but unfortunately we came up short. I’m proud of my team and how they fought though, we’ll definitely be back next year.” – North Carolina player
