CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Ty Outlaw and No . 16 Virginia Tech got a quick offensive start. The Hokies didn't need a whole lot more to advance in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.


Devin Vassell scored 14 points to lead the Seminoles, including a contested 3-pointer with 4.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

Alexander-Walker finished with 21 points for the Hokies, including a 3 that bounced up off the front rim and dropped through the net for a 63-60 lead with 1:40 left in OT.

They just couldn't protect that final lead, with FSU's Phil Cofer hitting a tying 3 then Alexander-Walker missing a contested drive with about 10 seconds left to set up Mann's basket going the other way.
