TUESDAY NIGHT HOOP

VIRGINIA TECH 67, BOSTON COLLEGE 48

We don’t know what Seth Greenberg said at halftime, but it worked.

The Hokies scored 25 ugly points in the first half and 42 rock’n rollin’ points in the second. BC could only muster a 31% shooting tally while going 4-18 (22%) from behind the arc. The Hokies weren’t much better shooting 42%, but only 15% (2 of 13) from three land.

A.D. Vassallo scored all 12 of his points in the second half, seven during an 18-4 run, and Virginia Tech enhanced its postseason resume with its third consecutive victory, beating Boston College 67-48.

The Hokies (17-11, 8-6 ACC) led 30-25 when Jeff Allen scored underneath with 18:11 to play, sparking the big burst. Virginia Tech continually limited the Eagles to one shot in the run and ultimately outrebounded them 50 to 33.

Boston College missed seven straight shots during the Hokies' run, while Vassallo, the Hokies' leading scorer, hit two jump shots and a 3-pointer, and Deron Washington added 5 points, including one of several fast-break dunks that marked the blowout.

Richmond native Tyrese Rice led the listless Eagles (13-13, 4-9) with 15 points, but missed 10 of 16 shots, had four turnovers and no assists.
