"Just Like Football!"

It was a true nail biter last night at Cassell Coliseum . Virginia Tech took on their in-state rival UVA in what was a huge ACC game for these two bubble teams.

As the game went back and forth in the first half, UVA went up at the half by four. After a much comic relief via a giant "Simon Says" game at halftime, Virginia Tech came out flying in the second half.

While Mike Scott for UVA led all scorers with 20 points, Dorenzo Hudson, Malcolm Delaney and Jeff Allen all amassed over 13 points. Jeff Allen was arguably player of the game with 13 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 4 blocks.

With under 1:30 left to play in the second half, Jeff Allen hit a clutch 3-pointer to break the tie. With some late fouls and clutch shooting, Virginia Tech was able to pull out the win: 61-55

And as the clock ticked to 0:00, the chant of "Just like football!" rang around the entire coliseum.

Virginia Tech moves to 20-4 on the season and 7-3 in ACC play. UVA falls to 14-8 on the season and 5-4 in ACC play.

The Hokies play Wake Forest at home this Tuesday. With a win over Wake Forest, Virginia Tech might finally push themselves past the bubble into the NCAA tournament.
