NC State Falls To Va. Tech 77-69

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Malcolm Delaney scored 22 points to help Virginia Tech beat North Carolina State 77-69 on Wednesday night.

Jeff Allen added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Hokies (15-6, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who dominated the boards early for plenty of extra scoring chances and built a comfortable lead they would maintain most of the way. Then, when the Wolfpack made a desperate push to get within six in the final 4 1/2 minutes, Delaney and Allen came up with key baskets to keep the Hokies in control.

It was a welcome second chance for Virginia Tech to make up for its last trip to its neighboring state to the south. On Jan. 13, Virginia Tech blew a 16-point lead in the first half and lost 64-61 at North Carolina.

Freshman C.J. Leslie scored 18 points for N.C. State (12-10, 2-6), which has lost six of seven games.
