ACC Roundup: Virginia Tech, Miami get wins

Associated Press
The ACC roundup …
BLACKSBURG, Va. ó Jeff Allen had a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds and Virginia Tech’s defense held the Richmond Spiders to their lowest scoring output of the season en route to a 62-48 non-conference win Wednesday night at Cassell Coliseum.
Tech also got a game-high 12 points from Malcolm Delaney. With the victory, the Hokies moved to 11-5 overall on the season, winning for the sixth time in their past seven games. Tech also avenged last season’s 52-49 loss to the Spiders, a loss that played a large role in the Hokies not receiving an at-large NCAA Tournament bid.
Richmond fell to 9-7 overall on the season, losing for just the second time in six games. Kevin Anderson led the Spiders with 11 points.
The Hokies used a 15-0 run midway through the first half to take a 24-6 lead with just under seven minutes remaining and never looked back. Richmond missed its first seven shots from the floor and 19 of their first 21. The Spiders trailed by as many as 22 in the first half and by 20 at halftime.
Miami 62, Maryland 60.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. ó The Miami Hurricanes rallied from a 17-point deficit in the second half, and Jack McClinton sank a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left to beat Maryland 62-60 on Wednesday night.
Greivis Vasquez sank a pair of 3-pointers early in the second half to help the Terrapins take their largest lead at 52-35 with 12:30 to go. Miami came back thanks to seven 3-pointers, the last three by McClinton, who scored 18 points.
The Hurricanes (13-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their sixth game in a row. The Terrapins (12-4, 1-1) lost in their first road game since Dec. 7.
Lance Hurdle stole the ball from Eric Hayes and drove for a layup to give the Hurricanes their first lead, 59-58, with 1:17 left.
