This matchup should produce another game worthy of March Madness.
The Hokies beat Duke less than a month ago, and while Zion was absent for that game, so was Robinson.
The last time Virginia Tech made it to the round of sixteen in the NCAA basketball tournament, the game was broadcast in black and white; Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin might have watched in anonymity because the pair were still two years away from walking on the moon; Frank Beamer was just starting his career with the Hokies football team - as a player. While the Hokies win over Liberty in the second round was tighter than expected - and may not inspire confidence going into the Sweet Sixteen - sometimes a challenge is necessary for a team to wake up fully.
With Duke's lead cut down to two after Virginia Tech put together a run late in the game, Jones refused to give up an inch with a clutch corner three, eliciting shades of his older brother Tyus' run in the 2015 tournament.

Teams that go deep in the NCAA tournament survive a game that could have eliminated them. After a 26-5 record in the regular season, Duke dominated the ACC Tournament in Charlotte, beating Syracuse, North Carolina and Florida State with three fantastic performances.
Zion Williamson has had a ton of incredible plays throughout his spectacular freshman season at Duke. The Blue Devils won by one point, 77-76, and were led by Zion Williamson's 32 points, 11 rebounds and four assists.
RJ Barrett, after struggling in the first half, turned it around and scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half. Of course, the Hokies weren't about to make it easy for the Blue Devils. For every drive and finish from Duke, the Hokies' Isaiah Wilkins, Justin Robinson and Ahmed Hill were there to cut the Blue Devils down.
