The Virginia Tech Hokies avenged Saturday’s loss to South Carolina on Wednesday, defeating the Campbell Fighting Camels 60-44 in Blacksburg.
If that score looks ugly, well, yes, it was ugly.
The Hokies maintained a lead throughout the game, often low double figures, but could never convincingly pull away from the Camels. Why? Virginia Tech shot just 38% from the field and made only four of 19 attempts from 3-point range.
So, while the Hokies struggled to put the ball in the basket, they did have two things going for them: Senior center Lynn Kidd and their defense.
