building on the same day the Hokies do
this Friday.

This afternoon Dave Leitao talked
to the media about this Cavaliers and
their opening round game.

For a team to go from not even

making the tournament one year to tying
for first place in the ACC and earning
a fourth seed in the Big Dance has been
satisifying for the second year head
coach.

Hokies and Illini will tip-off on
Friday night at 7:10. The Illini were
one of the last teams to get into the
dance, but likely will provide a stiff
test for Tech.

This is actually the second
Big 10 team that the Hokies have faced
this season. Tech knocked off Iowa in

November as part of the ACC-Big 10

was announced tonight and as expected
neither Virginia Tech nor UVA made the
field.

Six ACC teams got in including
Maryland, Duke, UNC, N.C. State,
Florida State and Georgia Tech.

The state did get two teams in
the tourney in Old Dominion and James
Madison.

The JMU Dukes are 27 and 5 and
seeded 9th.

If the Dukes beat Pittsburgh in

their opener - they will likely play
the Lady Vols of Tennessee..

VMI plays at number 10 Auburn

2005 When word got out a couple of
years ago about plans to build a mall
on 72 acres adjoining Poplar Forest, a
campaign emerged to save it from
commercial development.

Today the Foundation announced
the challenge has been met, thanks to a
number of of private donations,
including $20 from Mrs. Bailey's class
at Wasena Elementary school.

Those kids were fourth-graders at
the time- -so they're in Middle School
now... but they can claim a propriety
interest.
