Game Notes: #19 Virginia Tech, #22 UVA have TV games on Wednesday

Chris Graham

acc basketballPlaying its first game in the New Year, the #19 Virginia Tech will play at # 25 Louisville on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network.

#22 Virginia, the defending champs, will open 2021 at 9 p.m. on Regional Sports Networks against unranked Wake Forest.

The RSN affiliate in Virginia is MASN, because MASN has to show something when the Nats and O’s aren’t playing.

Tech-Louisville

The Hokies (8-1, 2-0 ACC) and Cardinals (7-1, 2-0) played each other once last season, a 68-52 setback on the road for the Hokies.

Tech on Wednesday will be trying to accomplish something that hasn’t happened since 1991, a win for the Hokies. The Cards own the all-time series 35-8, dating back to 1979.

The matchup will be broadcast on ACC Network (click here), with Mike Monaco (play-by-play) and Dan Bonner (analyst) on the call.

UVA-Wake

UVA (5-2, 1-0 ACC) was supposed to host Virginia Tech this past weekend, but the game was postponed after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The ‘Hoos will face a Wake Forest (3-1, 0-1 ACC) team that was off for more than a month due to COVID-19 issues, before returning last week with a 70-62 win over Catawba.

The Demon Deacons lost on Sunday at Georgia Tech, 70-54.

Virginia, ahead of its COVID-19 postponement, won its ACC opener at Notre Dame, 66-57, on Dec. 30.

The broadcast team for RSN is Tom Werme (play-by-play) and Mike Gminski (analyst).
