Virginia Tech Tops Georgia Tech 70-65 In Overtime

Posted: Updated:

Senior guard Erick Green scored 28 points, and the Virginia Tech men's basketball team came from behind to beat Georgia Tech 70-65 in overtime Saturday in Atlanta.

The victory snaps a four game losing streak for the Hokies (10-6, 1-2 ACC).

Virginia Tech trailed by as many as 11 points in the 2nd half, but held the Yellow Jackets without a field goal over the final 7 minutes of regulation.

The win is the first in ACC play for first-year coach James Johnson.

The Hokies return to action next Saturday at home against Wake Forest.
