Virginia Tech Upsets Virginia 80-78
Virginia took a 37-23 halftime lead, but their instate rivals completed the comeback to force overtime. In the first OT a late Virginia layup came to a stop on top of the rim.
The game went into a second OT where Allen’s layup with only a few seconds left got Virginia Tech the win. Allen would finish with 20 points on the night.
The win is huge for the Hookies because it greatly improved their resume, and could even help them punch their ticket into the tournament next month.
