Virginia Tech 85, Longwood 50

Freshman Erick Green scored 15 points and Jeff Allen added 13 to

lead Virginia Tech to an 85-50 win over Longwood on Wednesday.

Green played a career-high 30 minutes in relief of Atlantic

Coast Conference scoring leader Malcolm Delaney, who sprained his

left ankle just over a minute into the game and did not return.

Virginia Tech (11-1) extended its winning streak to eight games,

the Hokies’ longest since they won nine in a row to open the

1995-96 season.

Virginia Tech opened the game on a 19-4 run, holding the Lancers

(3-11) without a field goal for nearly nine minutes.

Dana Smith scored 11 points to lead Longwood.
