Virginia Tech basketball: Hokies no match for Auburn’s length in ACC/SEC Challenge

The Virginia Tech Hokies were on a bit of a roll until they met No. 19 Florida Atlanta on Sunday in the finals of the ESPN Events Invitational. FAU’s length and athleticism frustrated the Tech offense in an 84-50 rout of the Hokies.

Virginia Tech didn’t have a lot of time to put that loss behind them with a trip on Wednesday to Auburn to face the Tigers in the SEC/ACC Men’s Challenge. Unfortunately for VT, the Tigers presented a similar challenge to FAU and defeated the Hokies 74-57.

Auburn controlled the game from start, using its length and athleticism on the defensive end to drive the Hokies crazy.
