THE FILE LABELED: EXASPERATING

MARYLAND 69, VIRGINIA TECH 65

No doubt, this bunch of Terps has caused Gary Williams some sleepless nights. Last night was just one of those nights as the Terps gave up a bad home loss to the Hokies.

Yeah, it’s the ACC and it’s February, but you aren’t supposed to lose at home to a team you are supposed to beat. Blame the Washington Post which ran a nice story about Hokie freshman Jeff Allen in yesterday’s edition.

Allen had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Virginia Tech rallied to beat Maryland 69-65 Wednesday night to end a three-game losing streak.

The Hokies (15-11, 6-6 ACC) trailed by 14 in the first half and 47-37 with 11 minutes left, but ended the game with a 32-18 run to earn a rare win at Maryland and sweep the season series from the Terrapins (17-10, 7-5).

A.D. Vassallo scored 19 for Virginia Tech and Deron Washington had 12. The Hokies were coming off a 39-point loss at North Carolina and had not won at Maryland in five tries since 1951.
