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.

All five Yellow Jacket starters scored in double figures, Udofia finished the game with 15, Daniel Miller scored 11, and Jason Morris and Brandon Reed added 10 each.

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.
