Corey Raji added 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Eagles (18-11, 8-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who beat the Hokies 58-56 at home on Feb. 5. This time, BC led most of the way and used an 18-4 run to ice it after the Hokies closed to within 45-39 with 16 minutes left.
The Hokies (19-9, 9-6), coming off a 64-60 victory against then-No. 1 Duke on Saturday night that enhanced their NCAA tournament credentials significantly, couldn't follow it up. They appeared out of sync from the start and trailed by at least five for all but 5 minutes.
Erick Green led Virginia Tech with 21 points. Malcolm Delaney, one of three seniors honored before possibly his final home game, added 17 and fellow senior Jeff Allen had 14.
