BLACKSBURG, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- For just the third time in school history, Virginia Tech played into the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament. That run came to an end in the Sweet 16 Friday night.
The Hokies finished the year 26-9. Virginia Tech was a four seed and in the NCAA tournament three years in a row for the first time ever. Despite Justin Robinson missing 12 games because of an ankle injury, the Hokies finished fifth in the ACC.
"Missing 12 games. Coming back. Doing everything I needed, then winning two games in the tournament and playing in a third," Robinson said, "having a chance at the buzzer to take it to overtime and go to the Elite Eight is kind of a crazy feeling. I just think I'm very proud of everything."
Robinson is one of three players leaving Virginia Tech. That list includes fellow seniors Ahmed Hill and Ty Outlaw. There are questions about Kerry Blackshear Jr, a redshirt junior and Nickeil Alexander-Walker, a sophomore who led Virginia Tech in scoring and assists this season.
"To be here, its a blessing honestly," Alexander-Walker said. "To be with this group and to be with these guys, I wouldn't ask for anything else."
There are also questions about Buzz Williams. The Hokies head coach has been rumored to be the only candidate to take over at Texas A&M. According to multiple reports Saturday morning, Williams to the Aggies is a "done deal."
