Virginia Tech (1-0) clinched the season opener win on Monday and welcome back senior forward Justyn Mutts on Thursday as the Hokies host Lehigh (1-0) at Cassell Coliseum. Mutts sat out the opening after he was suspended by the NCAA for participating in a non-NCAA-certified event last spring while testing his NBA draft prospects. Virginia Tech has played in the last three NCAA tournaments, losing to Texas in the first round last year. The Mountain Hawks missed their opener Monday night, getting overwhelmed in the first half. Lehigh last made the postseason in 2013, playing for the CBI, and received his last NCAA offer in 2012.
