Virginia Tech v Duke
 DURHAM, NC - FEBRUARY 14: Grayson Allen #3 of the Duke Blue Devils collides with Kerry Blackshear Jr. #24 of the Virginia Tech Hokies as they battle for a rebound during their game at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 14, 2018 in Durham, North Carolina.

Last season wasn’t all that sterling for Virginia Tech’s Kerry Blackshear, Jr.

Blackshear, a junior, is one of the ACC’s lousiest returning 3-point shooters (.306). He tied for ninth in the league with 102 personal fouls. And those fouls propelled him to eight disqualifications in only 831 minutes on the court, essentially one every 100 minutes.

Only two ACC players, Duke’s Brian Zoubek in a championship effort in 2010, and Virginia Tech’s Jeff Allen a year earlier, matched Blackshear for DQs since 2004.

Because the Hokies’ leading rebounder (5.9 per outing) was often in foul trouble, Blackshear walked a tightrope of jeopardy that limited his ‘18 effectiveness. No wonder Virginia Tech was outrebounded on the year, more decisively in ACC action than overall.

Only lowly Pitt had a worse rebounding margin than Virginia Tech.
