Hokies make it three in a row

Virginia Tech got 17 points from Malcolm Delaney and 16 points and 15 rebounds from Jeff Allen as the Hokies overcame a sluggish first half to post a victory over South Carolina-Upstate, 64-53, Thursday night in Blacksburg.

A 13-2 run to close out the first half erased a seven-point deficit and sent Tech into the locker room with a 34-29 lead.

South Carolina-Upstate (2-10) cut the lead to five midway through the second half before Virginia Tech (8-4) took control with a 10-2 run capped by a Victor Davila dunk.
