kevnaey live shot am1 Wed, 15 Mar 2017 12:47:05 +0000 kevnaey live shot am1 kevnaey live shot am1 WFXR least we're back to the 40s and then the 50s. alexan. >> we are going mad on good day virginia. march madness taking our area by storm with the hokies and and te hoos tipping off. we have you covered from buffalo to around. wfxr sports team is covering every section of the hokies and the hoo's journey. >> sorry, jermaine. >> how are the hokies handling t is freezing temps in buffalo? >> well, i don't know how they'e handling it, but me, i'm holed p in my hotel room right now. i'm still recovering from the snowstorm in brooklyn that we al saw that i experienced. while jermaine is in orlando having fun i'm trying to stay as warm as possible. >> the hokies, obviously the 10 year drought is over. they're dancing in march. they got that ninth seed. they're taking on the eighth seeded wisconsin badgers thursdy night at 9:40 at the keybank center here in buffalo. now, the first thing that jumps off the page for me when we're talking about this matchup is experience. there's not one single player on the hokies roster who has ncaa tournament experience whereas on the other hand for the wisconsin badgers they have a wealth of it. four of their seniors were present during that back-to-back final 4 run in 2014 and 2015, bt do not fear, buzz williams, the head man of the hokies has enouh experience to cover the hokies back. now, when he was at marquette before he was at virginia tech n his sixth season he took the golden eagles to five ncaa appearances. that included three sweet 16 appearances and an elite eight run, so i think the hokies are covered in that. if they just follow what buzz williams tells them they'll be fine. >> we know that coaches coach ad players have to play. so really the nerves here are obviously going to be coastal ad center for this team that doesnt have a lick of experience in a big dance like this, but is that going to play to their advantag, knowing, hey, maybe there's not those big expectations right now. >> you hit the nail on the head. you know what's funny is that te hokies have been playing that up all season, and if not for the past three seasons under buzz williams, they love that underdg card. they thrive on it. they expect to be the underdog, and they want that. and another thing to point out s there's one stat in particular that i thought just jumped off the page. wisconsin is 307th in the countr in three-point defense. the hokies are ranked ninth in the country in three-point offense and they also led the ac this season, shooting 40.3 percent from behind the arc. so i think if the hokies can catch fire and their shots are falling thursday
