they hope support for servicemen and

:00 But first your Extra Point -
today was a day to recognize
outstanding football at the General
Assembly.

In the Senate, William & Mary
quarterback Lang Campbell out of
Winchester - an all-American in every
since of the word was honored for his
outstanding play this past season.

And over in the House - Bruce
Smith - the former Hokie was recognized
for all of his many accomplishments.

Now your scores.

espn2 J.J. Redick was back home hoping :00 the Blue Devils could blow Tech out by
35 like they did earlier this season in
Durham.


But this would not be Durham, the
Hokies were in the game from the start
as Carlos Dixon and Jamon Gordon
stepped up in the first half and gave a
presence they sorely lacked at Duke.

And take a look at the man who
made the most difference. Coleman
Collins takes the no-look pass and
hammers it home with two hands. He had
14 points and 17 rebounds.

FX Instead of the Gatorade Twins, :00 they are now known as the Gatorade Duel
and instead of being 125 miles long -
they are 150 miles in length.

But some things never change like
sheet metal damage - several wrecks in
the first race, set up an all DEI
sprint for the win.

Take a look at Michael Waltrip in
the Blue NAPA machine - just nip Dale
Earnhardt, Jr. in the Bud Chevy for the
win in the first race.
*CG file Gatorade Duel Race Two

In the second race, Kevin Harvick
made a bunch of enemies when he decided
to bump draft leader Jimmie Johnson in
the corner. That's a no-no on a super
speedway and the uncalled for move not
only knocked out Harvick and Johnson,
but Mark Martin and Rusty Wallace and

Joe Nemechek to mention a few.

Tony Stewart took advantage of
the depleted field to win the second
race over Jeff Burton.
