The Mike London era in Charlottesville got off to a great start with a big Cavalier win over the coach’s alma mater, the University of Richmond. Despite the loss, the Spiders showed they can play with the best and anticipate another great season. Virginia Tech, ranked 13th in the pre-season poll, lost in the final minute to No. 3 Boise State on Monday night. The Hokies fought back from a 17-point deficit to take the lead, only to lose it with one minute to play. The Trojans of Virginia State University opened with a rout of Livingstone, while Virginia Union’s Panthers are now 0-2 following a season-opening loss at Winston-Salem State and Saturday’s defeat at Shaw University. The Tigers of Saint Paul’s College also lost their opener at West Virginia Wesleyan.
