The old saw is that winners find a way to win, even though they might be having problems and issues. The Lady Hokies took to Cassell Coliseum’ Carilion Court a bit on the flat side, shooting from just about anywhere. Warmups are usually encouraging with balls draining and the net splashing, but this time, with a decent enough crowd of mostly locals and holdovers for the Thanksgiving break, the team seemed a bit flat. Maybe it was the Highty-Tighties missing from the band stand, and the lack of a good sized Cassell Guard section definitely wasn’t as fun. Small, odd things can grab the subconscious and make things weird, that’s a given in life.
