Miami Hurricanes beat Virginia Tech to continue to ACC semifinals

The University of Miami Hurricanes pulled of another upset in the ACC tournament beating the Virginia tech Hokies 70-65.

The Hurricanes, who ended the year in last place in the ACC, followed up their upset of Wake Forest earlier in the week with a win over the Hokies that sends the Hurricanes to a semifinal game against Duke on Saturday.

Virginia Tech had an early 22-10, riding a great start by Dorenzo Hudson, scoring 15 of his 16 points in the first half. Jeff Allen added another 18 points for the Hokies.

Durand Scott led the hurricanes with 17 points, ten of which came in the last five minutes of the game.

The Hurricanes outrebounded the Hokies 23-8. The Miami defense held the Hokies to 38 percent shooting and 18 turnovers which allowed the Hurricanes to win despite the low productivity of red shirt freshman Reggie Johnson. Despite not contirbuting on offense he was able to contribute 12 rebounds and three blocks.

Dwayne Collins, Miami's leading scorer, missed the game due to a knee injury.

It is the first time the Hurricanes win two conference tournament games in one season. They had made two preivous conference semifinals in 1999 and 2000 when Miami still played in the Big East.
