BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) – Dorenzo Hudson made a 3-pointer as time expired in overtime to lift Virginia Tech to a 75-74 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.
The Yellow Jackets took a 73-71 lead on a jumper by Mfon Udofia with 5 seconds remaining, and Virginia Tech called a timeout with 3.5 seconds left.
After the timeout, Jarell Eddie caught the ball in the corner and nearly lost control. But he passed the ball out of a double team and found Hudson, who launched the game-winning shot for the Hokies (15-12, 4-8 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Erick Green finished with 14 points and could’ve won the game in regulation for Virginia Tech, but his jumper missed. Cadarian Raines added a career-high 13 points for the Hokies, who lost on a last-second shot by Florida State on Thursday.
Georgia Tech (9-17, 2-10), which has lost nine of its past 10 games and 13 of 15, got a game-high 18 points from Kammeon Holsey.
Tech, which had struggled to score and shoot the ball well of late, hit a season-high 58.3 percent from the floor, including 7-of-13 three-point tries, and outrebounded the Hokies, 32-18.
Tech returns home to face Clemson at 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
