Wake Forest can't complete comeback against Va. Tech

Wake Forest can't complete comeback against Va. Tech

Justin Bibbs and the Hokies picked up an important road win on Wednesday night.

So what boxes did the Hokies check on Wednesday in Winston-Salem?

Virginia Tech led from the opening basket. They never got closer than four and the Hokies, who rode hot 3-point shooting to lead by 15 at the half, escaped with a 83-75 ACC victory at Joel Coliseum.

The Hokies led by 15 at halftime and by 17 midway through the second half, then turned away several pushes by the Demon Deacons (8-8, 1-3) down the stretch. He also had three assists and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

As good as Bibbs was, it was Ahmed Hill who led the team with 21 points.

Wake Forest center Doral Moore scored in double figures for the first time since December 18, with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Chris Clarke came off the bench to score 14 points and grab six rebounds.

As a team, Virginia Tech was 28-of-57 (50.9%) from the field and 12-of-28 (42.9%) from three-point range. Heading into the contest, the Hokies were 28-of-112 (25%) from the outside since the second half of the Kentucky game.

They shot often and made half of the shots that they took.

For the first time since the first half versus the University of Kentucky on December 16, Virginia Tech looked like the dominant team tonight.

He found no joy in it because the Demon Deacons still lost. "We came back in the second half and did a couple of things right but not enough to have the outcome we want, which is a win". Robinson started the spurt with a one-handed baseline flip and capped it with a 3-point play after he was fouled flipping an off-balance shot with his body turned sideways in the lane and made the free throw. Then the Hokies had scored 81 points in a weekend win against Pittsburgh, though they didn't shoot well from behind the arc. Bibbs had totaled 10 points the past two games, when he was a combined 0 of 8 from 3-point range. That was the end of a long 16-8 run that spanned almost seven minutes, and it gave the home team life at the end of the game.

The Hokies jumped out to an 11-1 lead.

After a Clarke steal, Justin Robinson made a basket and free throw to extend the lead to 73-66 with 1:56 left.

Robinson likes having the ball in his hands late in the game. It was not a ideal game for Tech by any standard, but it does represent Wake's largest margin of defeat in ACC play this season. He missed almost all of last week's win over Syracuse and didn't play against Boston College on Saturday.

More importantly, it's a road win for the Hokies, which was much needed before they begin to run a gauntlet of very hard games coming up: at Louisville, vs. Florida State, vs.

Boston College: At No. 12 North Carolina on Tuesday before consecutive home games against Dartmouth and No. 24 Florida State.

Points in the paint were controlled by Wake Forest, with 36 points, compared to Virginia Tech's 30. With two games coming up against second-ranked Duke and one against No. 8 Virginia in their next five, they'll have to either get him back or find scoring elsewhere. As the competition has gotten tougher, Williams has been less inclined to play his freshmen. "We were just getting open looks".
