Thanksgiving dribble

We're thankful for the light schedule Thursday because, hey, we like to eat, too. So dig into this brief recap, then enjoy the holiday!

Wednesday's recap

Virginia Tech 78, Radford 51: Highlanders (0-3) had a lead for the first time all season. The next step: learning how to hold it.

Thursday's action

Old Dominion (0-3) vs. Syracuse (4-0)(Cancun Thanksgiving Classic), 8:15 p.m.

- ODU would be thankful for any kind of win here to avoid an 0-4 start. They'll need to shoot better than their 35 percent average. Help could be on the way as star forward Jessica Canady has hinted she might give it a go. We're hoping she doesn't, as the Lady Monarchs will need a 100-percent healthy Canady for the CAA season. These games would be nice to win; those will be crucial. Tia Lewis would love to make up for her 1-of-9 debacle against N.C. State, and she'll have her hands full at the other end trying to check senior forward Nicole Michael, coming off a 36-point, 17-rebound assault on Binghamton. Several Lady Monarchs are overdue for good games, but while we hope it's today, we want to see it first. Besides, ODU almost never beats a team in orange. Syracuse 78, ODU 68

Virginia (3-1) vs. Indiana (3-1)(Junkanoo Jam in the Bahamas), 2:15 p.m.

- While we feast on turkey and football, these guys are basking in the Caribbean under the sun. Pass the sunscreen, Debbie. As glamorous as it sounds, most of the time teams see little more than the inside of a gym and a hotel room. Here's hoping Ryan lets her young Cavaliers do some jammin' in Junkanoo. A victory would certainly lighten the mood. Virginia 82, Indiana 66.
