A new basketball season is just around the corner and I’m looking forward to seeing you as part of the Cassell Guard this season. Cassell Coliseum is one of the toughest places to play in the country because of the atmosphere our students and fans create. I encourage you all to purchase student season tickets as we move "Forward Together" in 2013-14. You make a huge difference in terms of how our team responds each game. Sometimes the result of a game may come down to a single possession, and we all have a role in what the result of that play may be. To prepare our players and the student section for a new season of Hokie Hoops, I’m inviting all students to attend our practice on Friday, Oct. 11 from 3-4:15 p.m. inside Cassell Coliseum. We need you to come out to this practice and help prepare our players for the hostile student sections we’ll see all season playing in the nation’s toughest conference. Hope to see you on Friday inside the Cassell!
