    For those interested the VMI Men's basketball team is featured in current ESPN.Com. For those in the NY area- VMI plays Army at West Point on Dec 21st. GO KEYDETS!

    VMI's high-octane offense producing points and now wins
    LEXINGTON, Va. -- The Virginia Military Institute scores 101.9 points per contest, an NBA-caliber average despite the 40-minute college game. Division I's only triple-digit scoring attack is on the verge of leading the country for the third straight season. According to one of the team's two 20-point scorers, VMI's philosophy can be summed up in eight little words.

    "Shoot the ball before you turn it over," senior guard Travis Holmes said.

    This season started off with a bang when they beat Kentucky. Not bad -Rupp Arena had 22,000 fans to watch that- roughly 16 times the size of the VMI student body!
