It’s finally here. College basketball season has arrived, and the Virginia Tech Hokies tip off the 2023-24 season on Monday against the Coppin State Eagles.
It’s been an eventful month for the Hokies, and not necessarily in a good way. Virginia Tech lost a key member of the 2023-24 roster when sophomore guard Rodney Rice left the team. It was a tough blow for head coach Mike Young so close to the season, as the Hokies can’t replace Rice on the roster.
Rice, one of the top recruits in program history, was expected to be a significant contributor to this year’s team.
