NCAA Tournament 2019: Virginia Tech vs. Saint Louis First Round, time, TV channel, how to watch

Riding with one of the most potent offense's in the country, the No. 4 Virginia Tech Hokies will play the No. 13 Saint Louis Billikens in the NCAA Tournament. 

That offense (10th in offensive efficiency in KenPom), gave Virginia Tech their best season in quite a while. Tech's 24 wins marked their second-highest win total in program history. However, they've been without guard Justin Robinson for the last half of conference play. He is back for the Hokies which adds another element for a team looking to win their first tournament game since 2007.

Saint Louis (22-12, 10-8 Atlantic 10) is only here because the Billikens won the A-10's automatic bid. With a solid mixup of zone defenses, they are a difficult draw for anyone, and especially a hot and cold shooting Hokies squad.
