Virginia Tech men host Charleston Southern

Roanoke Times

For the second time this week, the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team will take on an opponent from Charleston, South Carolina, on Friday.

This time, however, the opponent will be Charleston Southern.

And this time, hockey will be playing in their own arena.

The Hokies (5-1) will host Big South member Charleston Southern at 8 p.m. Friday in a game to be televised by the ACC Network.

Virginia Tech is coming off a 77-75 loss to The College of Charleston in the championship game of the Charleston Classic on Sunday. That game was played in the Cougars arena and in front of a rowdy pro-Cougars crowd.

Charleston Southern (2-2) beat National Collegiate Athletic Association member Bethune Cookman of Toccoa Falls. The Pirates lost at Ohio State (82-56) and at Tulane (99-79).
