Watch and Witness the Heart and Love of Christ: Virginia Tech Coach Prays Over His Players After Devastating Loss

By The Stream Published on April 2, 2019

Virginia Tech Hokies and Duke’s Blue Devils battled it out at the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament last Friday at Capital One Arena in D.C. The ending could not have been more dramatic. As Hokiesports.com reported “The Hokies had three chances to tie or take the lead, but Ahmed Hill and Ty Outlaw missed 3-pointers, and then with 0.6 seconds to go, Hill missed a layup in front of the rim at the buzzer that would have tied the game.” Duke won 75-73. The Hokies were crestfallen.

After the heartbreaking loss, Virginia Tech’s Coach Buzz Williams prayed over his players. A prayer that, as Rev. James Robison said, “was like watching and witnessing the heart and love of our heavenly Father. This coach’s spirit can heal our racial tension and national division.”

Williams posted that praying after a game was the only way to go. “In my opinion, there is never a right ending to the last postgame, so for the last 12 years, this is what we have always done. This is a portion of what transpires.”

Watch … and be blessed:

Update: Coach Buzz Williams just accepted a job as the Men’s Head Basketball Coach at Texas A&M in College Station. Williams will be coming back to his home state. The VT Scoop reported that “Buzz Williams finished his Virginia Tech career with 100 wins and 69 losses. He is known as an excellent recruiter, fantastic X’s and O’s coach, and someone who can revitalize a stagnant program.” May God bless Coach Williams and let him be a blessing in his new position.
