Florida State pulls away with late run, defeats Virginia Tech, 74-68

accFlorida State took control with an 18-1 run and held off a late Virginia Tech rally to win 74-68 Thursday in the 2017 ACC Tournament.

The Seminoles dominated the boards, 45-31, and had a 42-20 advantage in points in the paint.

Dwayne Bacon had a team-high 17 points, but was just 4-of-17 from the field, while going 9-of-10 from the foul line.

LeDay led the Hokies with 22 points and nine rebounds.
