Big Second Half Gives VT Win

Posted:

ATLANTA (AP) -- Virginia Tech point guard Erick Green scored 24 points as the Hokies went on a 9-0 run to take the lead late in the game and hung on to beat Clemson 68-63 on Thursday night in the first round of the ACC tournament.

There were 10 ties, the last at 52-52. Clemson, the No. 7 seed, then went about 3 minutes without scoring as Virginia Tech, the No. 10 seed, took the lead.

The Hokies (16-16), who ended a four-game losing streak, will play No. 2 seed Duke in Friday night's quarterfinals.

Clemson's Milton Jennings hit a 3-pointer with 17 seconds remaining to cut the Hokies' lead to 68-63. After Dorenzo Hudson made two free throws for Virginia Tech, the Tigers couldn't make another 3.
