BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Virginia Tech bookstores in Blacksburg are marking the basketball's return to the tournament with merchandise.

March Madness T-shirts were put on shelves yesterday and are already a hot item at Volume Two Bookstore. This is the first time many students and staff members have had the opportunity to buy a Virginia Tech March Madness T-shirt.

"It's been 10 years since we've went to this tournament so I think it's just an honor one, being there and I think the Hokies really rally around success and I think Buzz has really done a lot with the program already and we're just really excited for our Hokies," said Leslie Morgan, the retail division manager for Volume Two.

The stores had just a few days to create the shirts and get them ready for customers. Other basketball shirts are also available.
