Virginia vs. Virginia Tech: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Who’s Playing

Virginia Tech @ Virginia

Current Records: Virginia Tech 8-6; Virginia 9-6

What to Know

The Virginia Cavaliers will be returning home after a three-game road trip. Virginia and the Virginia Tech Hokies will face off in an ACC battle at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday at John Paul Jones Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’

On Saturday, the Cavaliers lost to the North Carolina Tar Heels on the road by a decisive 74-58 margin. The losing side was boosted by guard Reece Beekman, who had 13 points.

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last Tuesday as they fell 68-63 to the NC State Wolfpack. Guard Nahiem Alleyne wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Hokies; Alleyne finished with only nine points on 2-for-11 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Virginia is expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 3-7 against the spread when favored.

The losses put Virginia at 9-6 and Virginia Tech at 8-6. The Cavaliers don’t typically stay down for long — they’re 5-0 after losses this year — so Virginia Tech (3-2 after losses) won’t have an easy go of it.
