Virginia Tech: The Hokies return all five starters from last year's team that went 25-9, including four seniors. They are led by Malcolm Delaney, who averaged 20.2 points and 4.5 assists last year and entered this season with All-American expectations.... Virginia Tech was a strong candidate for an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament last year, but had to settle for the NIT when experts deemed its nonconference schedule soft.... In an attempt to beef up its games before ACC play, the Hokies are playing K-State, Purdue, Mississippi State and playing in the ESPN 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.... Virginia Tech won its first game of the season 80-70 over Campbell at home.
Kansas State: The frontcourt provided little in a season-opening win over James Madison. Jordan Henriquez-Roberts led the way with six points, Wally Judge scored two and junior Freddy Asprilla was held scoreless. The Wildcats could benefit greatly from the return of forwards Curtis Kelly and Jamar Samuels, but coach Frank Martin has not yet decided whether or not to play them.... Pullen and Delaney are two of the best senior guards in the country, and watching them go up against each other should be a treat.... The rare afternoon tipoff on a weekday may prevent fans from attending, but Martin said it will not change his team's routine. "We're going to treat it like a Saturday game," Martin said. "It will be good for us. Come conference tournament time, come NCAA Tournament time, you might play a Thursday/Friday afternoon game. I've got no problem with the game time."
