Video: Buzz Williams Grabbed The Mic, Scolded His Student Section Mid-Game

Virginia Tech got its biggest win of the season on Monday night. The Hokies upset No. 5 Duke.

VT, which likely secured an NCAA Tournament berth with the win, won on a last-second tip-in. The students rushed the floor.

Cassell Coliseum was unsurprisingly pretty rowdy throughout the contest. The student section was going crazy.

They were a little too crazy at one point. That's what Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams thought, anyway.

Mid-game, Williams grabbed the microphone from the scorer's table. He had a message for his students.

“Quit cussin. Quit cussin,” Williams said.

Williams also told his players to stop throwing things onto the floor. Everyone seemed to oblige.

Duke fans were obviously upset with the loss, but they came away from the game really respecting Williams. "You really can’t hate Buzz Williams. Such a stand up guy in every way," one fan tweeted.
