VIDEO: Why you have to call out screens

As we wrote over at CBT, Duke managed to survive in overtime against Virginia Tech, 70-65, sending the Hokies to yet another disappointing loss while managing to prove that they are still a better team at the road than they are at home.

During the game, we got a terrific lesson in hoops: always call out screens. Why? Because Ty Thornton got blown up when he ran into the brick wall that is Cadarian Raines:

The blame has to fall on Mason Plumlee, and while Mason Plumlee can be seen calling out the screen and pointing towards the screener, the fact that Thornton ended up on the floor is a sign that he a) wasn't loud enough and b) didn't make the call early enough.
