BOSTON (AP) — Justin Bibbs scored 13 points, getting seven with a 4-point play and a 3-pointer 27 seconds later to cap a game-breaking 21-6 run that carried Virginia Tech to a 91-75 win over Boston College on Saturday.
Zach LeDay led the Hokies (20-8, 9-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 18 points. Ty Outlaw had 16 and Seth Allen 15.
Jerome Robinson scored 25 and Ky Bowman added 16 for the Eagles (9-20, 2-14), who have lost 12 straight.
The Hokies broke a 50-all tie when Justin Robinson hit the first of two free throws that triggered the key run.
Following a driving basket by Allen, BC's Mo Jeffers was whistled for a technical when he slammed the ball to the floor after being called for a blocking foul. Allen then hit two free throws and LeDay had a 3-point play, making it 56-50.
The Hokies capped the run when Outlaw had a 3-pointer from the left corner, Bibbs a 4-point play after he nailed a 3 and was fouled by A.J. Turner, and Bibbs followed with another 3 from the top of the key.
There was a moment in the first half when nearly all 10 of the players on the court hit the floor during a long scramble for a loose ball — that rolled from inside the 3-point line before it was tied up at midcourt for a jump ball.
