VIRGINIA TECH 80, No. 12 VIRGINIA 78, 2OT
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) – Seth Allen hit a short jumper in the lane with 3.2 seconds left in the second overtime and Virginia Tech beat Virginia for the second consecutive year at Cassell Coliseum.
Allen, who led the Hokies (17-7, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 22 points, pulled up a few feet from the basket and made the shot, ending a crazy game that featured a tip-in to force the first overtime and a shot that died on the rim, helping to force the second.
London Perrantes had 22 points to lead Virginia (18-6, 8-4).
Ty Outlaw’s tip-in with 1 second left in regulation forced the overtime, and Perrantes’ bid for a go-ahead layup with 21 seconds left in the first overtime died on the rim. The officials called a jump ball, the Hokies had the possession arrow and Allen missed for the Hokies.
