Blacksburg - Virginia Tech coach James Johnson says forward C.J. Barksdale out of Danville will have an x-ray on his injured groin. Also guard Adam Smith will not practice this week with his stress fracture. The Hokies play at Florida State Wednesday night at 9, looking to snap an 8-game losing skid.
James Johnson, VIRGINIA TECH HEAD COACH, said "It's very tough and frustrating for me to look down the bench and see three potential starters down there in suits, they're looking like me out there. They can't help us much dressed the way I'm dressed and that's frustrating. But it is what it is, that's what we have now and we've got to keep fighting."
