Hokies Stormed Out Of Miami In Loss To Hurricanes

I recently posted about how Virginia Tech would need to avoid a bad loss in order to make the NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately for Hokie Nation, that loss came today at Miami.

The Hurricanes came out blazing in the first half shooting 70 percent from the floor. Virginia Tech was held to 30 points in the first half. All 30 points were spread around three players--Malcolm Delaney, Dorenzo Hudson and Jeff Allen who scored 10 points apiece.

With a 17 point deficit heading into the second half, the Hokies rebounded and JT Thompson woke up. Thompson finished with 14 points in the contest.

The Hokies would get the game within five points midway through the second half but the Hokies could get no closer. It seemed like every time Virginia Tech would get close, Miami would respond with a clutch 3-pointer.

In the end, Miami prevailed with their second ACC win: 75-82

Virginia Tech falls to 16-4 on the season and 3-3 in ACC play while Miami moves to 16-5 on the season and 2-5 in ACC play.

Virginia Tech plays back to back home games against UNC and Clemson in this upcoming week.
