Hawks falls short at Virginia Tech, 95-79

Posted:

Erick Green scored 24 points and Robert Brown had 18 Tuesday night, leading Virginia Tech to a 95-79 victory against Iowa in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

The Hokies (6-0) broke away with a 19-1 run spanning the halves, then withstood a run that pulled the Hawkeyes to within 57-54 with 12 minutes left. Virginia Tech then went on a 12-4 burst to rebuild the margin. The victory, under first-year coach James Johnson, gave the Hokies their first 6-0 start since 1982-83. Iowa is now 2-10 in the Challenge event with the Hawkeyes' last win coming in 2005.

Aaron White had 21 points to lead the Hawkeyes (5-2) and Roy Devyn Marble added 18.

Virginia Tech tried to take command to start the second half as Green scored the first nine points, extending the Hokies' lead to 55-38 -- their largest to that point in what had been a very close game. The Big 10 leads the Challenge 5-1 after day one.
