SUNDAY NIGHT HOOPS

VIRGINIA TECH 88, MIAMI 83 OT – Like two heavyweight boxers, the Hokies and Canes stood toe-to-toe and duked it out for 40 minutes. The question was which pair of sluggers would prevail: Virginia Tech’s Malcom Delaney (29 points) and A.J. Vasallo (28 points) or Miami’s star duo of Dwayne Collins (23 points) and sharpshooter Jack McClinton (20 points). Answer: Delaney and Vasallo.

Virginia Tech (14-5, 4-1 ACC), coming off an upset of then No. 1 Wake Forest, again went on the road to capture a hard fought victory over Miami. The Canes (14-5, 3-3) had leads in both halves and in the overtime, but the Hokies kept fighting back with Delaney and Vasallo doing the heavy lifting.

Delaney's 3-pointer with 1:49 left in overtime gave Virginia Tech the lead for good at 84-83. The win gave the Hokies sole possession of second place in the conference.


No. CLEMSON 73, GEORGIA TECH 59 – Clemson (17-2, 3-2 ACC) recovered from its two-game losing streak with a win over the Jackets. After opening the season 16-0, the Tigers lost to top-five teams Wake Forest and Clemson and Georgia Tech turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. The Yellow Jackets are 9-10 and winless in the ACC at 0-6.

Terrence Oglesby hit five 3-pointers and scored 18 points, Trevor Booker had 11 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Tigers.
