Box Score

The Virginia Tech Hokies dropped their second straight game, 60-80, on the road to a bad boston college team. Tech played flat and looked defeated from the opening tip. They were never in the game as the eagles bolted out to a quick 7-0 lead and never trailed, leading by double-digits for much of the game.

Jeff Allen was once again in foul trouble, picking up his second less than seven minutes into the game and fouled out with about seven minutes to go in the game. Bottom line, the Hokies couldn’t hit a shot and bc couldn’t miss, especially early on.

Malcolm Delaney and Dorenzo Hudson provided virtually all of the scoring with Delaney getting 21 and Hudson adding 14. Ten of Delaney’s 21 were free throws, where he was a perfect 10-10. Allen was the only other Hokie in double-digit scoring with 10 points.

Tech shot just 31 percent from the field and a paltry 13 percent (2/15) from behind the arc. Meanwhile, the iggles shot better than 50 percent from the field and 44 percent (7/16) from three. Joe Trapani lead bc with 17 points, virtually all of which came in the first half.

This loss is a bad one. In fact, it’s easily their worst loss of the season. And you have to wonder if Sunday’s loss to duke stuck with the team. bc was 4-8 in ACC play and a very weak 13-13 overall.

Now the Hokies have to return home to face a good and dangerous maryland team that could easily hand Tech a third straight loss. With the loss to bc, the Hokie need to win two of their last three games to be in a comfortable position for an NCAA bid.
