Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans describes himself as his own biggest critic, and that feeling holds true even after he makes a play that results in a touchdown.That was the case in the Hokies 49-0 victory against Boston College .Late in the first half, after a 29-yard punt return set Virginia Tech up at the Eagles 30, Evans threw to Isaiah Ford in the back of the end zone. Ford was double-covered, but still managed to come away with the football.It was the first play Evans mentioned when asked if he sees things he still needs to improve upon.I have more, but again, you just learn from the mistakes that you have, he said. Checking out of plays, doing stuff like that, doing stuff a couple of times that I could have done better without the play clock running down.Hokies coach Justin Fuente made sure to address the pass to Ford with his quarterback, too. He doesnt want to see the risky type of pass repeated when Virginia Tech (2-1) hosts East Carolina (2-1) on Saturday.The Pirates have won the last two meetings, and six in a row against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.Jerod knows that were not supposed to throw the ball into double coverage like that, Fuente said this week. Its a minus on the grade sheet and a plus on the results sheet.That said, the Hokies first-year coach noted that Evans confidence in Ford coming through for him is somewhat understandable. Ford has 20 receptions for 259 yards and three touchdowns.Obviously he went up and made the play and we feel good about Isaiah and our chances with him, he said. It was a heck of a catch. I dont think we just want to start chucking it to him with two people on him all the time, though.While pledging to heed his coachs insistence on better decision-making, Evans also seems to be trying to elevate the Hokies offensive expectations, perhaps based on his own history. Last season at Trinity Valley Community College in Texas, he played in just eight games, but threw 38 touchdown passes and just three interceptions. This season, hes got 10 touchdowns and one interception on a tipped pass.Obviously youre confident after a 49-0 win, he said. I just dont know to what extent. Ill find out more on Thursday and Friday, but I think the guys are confident. I dont think some of the guys have ever scored 49 points in a game, so I thinks thats definitely a boost.The Hokies have reached that plateau once in the last two seasons, in a 51-24 victory at Purdue last season.Pirates first-year coach Scottie Montgomery sees a vast different in the challenge the Hokies present offensively under Fuente.That offense has grown from last year to this year as much as any offense, I think, to this point in time, he said. Hes been blessed with some really good players. Jerod Evans, his quarterback, has complete faith in (Ford) and (tight end) Bucky (Hodges), and those two combined together give them some great talent and weapons in their offense.Evans hopes to build on the Hokies success against Boston College to make it a habit.Once you do it a couple of times, its like anything, Evans said. Once you rep it so many times, it becomes the norm. Obviously it was just one game. We still have to work on stuff that we arent doing well on.---Online: The APs college football page: http://collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Hank on Twitter: www.twitter.com/hankkurzjr Cheap Flyers Jerseys .

One of the Pelicans primary players is back and already helping them win.Jrue Holiday scored 21 points in his first action this season, Anthony Davis had his latest stellar outing with 38 points, nine rebounds and four blocks, and the Pelicans beat the Portland Trail Blazers 113-101 on Friday night.I head a great first game, Holiday said. The thrill was there. It felt good, being a part of a team.Holiday made his season debut after missing the first 12 games to care for his wife, retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who had brain surgery last month only weeks after giving birth to the couples first child, a daughter.He wound up playing just more than 23 minutes hitting an array of jumpers, including a 3, as well as driving floaters and layups. He finished with seven assists, none more crowd-pleasing than his crisp bounce-pass to a cutting Davis, who finished the play with a thunderous two-handed dunk.Holiday had been in constant contact with coaches and studying game video while on leave, so he wasnt surprised that he quickly got into the rhythm of the offense.There are some new faces around here, but at the same time its the same system, Holiday said. The part that I was really worried about was conditioning. I really thought that I was behind. Maybe I was just excited for this game. I felt like I could play forever.Terrence Jones added 15 points, and Tim Frazier had 12 for the Pelicans. New Orleans built the lead up to 20 in the fourth quarter and cruised to the finished. Theyve won three of five after an 0-8 start.Damian Lillard scored 27 points, and CJ McCollum 24 for Portland, which has lost three straight to fall to 7-7. Mason Plumlee added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who never got closer than eight points in the second half.We obviously are not playing the best basketball right now, but we are still .500, said Portland forward Ed Davis, who had 11 rebounds in a starting role that required him to attempt to defend his Pelicans namesake. Its not like we are on an eight-game losing streak.We are not in panic mode, he added.

In my eyes, hes one of the top point guards in the league and it showed.DOMINANT DAVISDavis was making shots from all over the court, hitting a pair of 3s to go with usual leaners, floaters, layups and mid-range jumpers.The Pelicans made their first significant push in the final three minutes of the first half. Portland was down 51-47 after Plumlees 16-foot jumper, but Davis responded with a 16-footer of his own that sparked a 13-4 run to close out the half. Davis added six more points during the spurt, hitting a jumper, floater and spinning a reverse layup off the glass with McCollum climbing on his shoulders. Davis also rejected his third Lillard shot of the half, and New Orleans led 64-51 as the horn sounded to end the second quarter.NEW LOOKHoliday wore goggles as a precaution after missing the last nine games of last season because of an inadvertent elbow he took to the head, fracturing his orbital eye wall.He said he hasnt decided yet how long hell wear them.We won so Im probably going to play in them Saturday night, he said.
