Finney-Smith's Late Tip-in Lifts Virginia Tech Past BC

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech's Dorian Finney-Smith tipped in a Robert Brown missed 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds left to lift the Hokies past Boston College 66-65 in an ACC game played Sunday night at Cassell Coliseum.

With the win, Tech moved to 14-11 overall, 3-7 in the ACC, and snapped a four-game losing streak to the Eagles. BC fell to 8-17 overall, 3-8 in the league.

"They grew up a little bit tonight," Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg said of his team, which has won two of its past three games. "They showed they wanted to win. They showed great resiliency. They showed some toughness. I'm not saying we were good on the defensive end. They made us guard for long periods of time, and we didn't guard their spread offense very well.
