The ACC basketball roundup …
STILLWATER, Okla. ó A rare nonconference rematch between Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State didn’t end up all that different than the first meeting.
Dorenzo Hudson scored 18 points, including four clinching free throws in the final minute, and the Hokies again controlled the boards to beat the increasingly shorthanded Cowboys 67-61 on Saturday.
Dorian Finney-Smith grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Virginia Tech to a 47-24 advantage on the glass, with 18 offensive rebounds leading to 24 second-chance points. The Hokies had an 11-rebound advantage in their 59-57 win against Oklahoma State the day after Thanksgiving at the NIT Season Tip-Off.
Victor Davila hit two free throws with 1:30 remaining to put the Hokies (11-3) back ahead after Oklahoma State had rallied with 10 straight points to tie it at 61. LeBryan Nash missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer at the other end for the Cowboys (7-6), and Keiton Page missed three more 3-pointers down the stretch.
Hudson then finished off Virginia Tech’s sixth straight win by going 4-for-4 at the foul line in the final 22 seconds.
Maryland 75, Samford 63
COLLEGE PARK, Md. ó Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was so upset with the way his team was practicing Friday morning that he kicked them out and sent them home, then called them back for an evening practice.
The players must have gotten Turgeon’s message, as Terrell Stoglin scored 24 points and Maryland defeated Samford 75-63 on Saturday, setting a season high for margin of victory.
Maryland (9-3) has won six straight and finished the month of December undefeated.
