Monet Tellier matched her season high with 24 points and Virginia Tech snapped a four-game losing streak, upsetting No. 19 Florida State 71-52 Sunday.

The Hokies (9-18, 3-13) held the Atlantic Coast Conference's best offensive team to 32.8-percent shooting (21 of 64). The Seminoles entered leading the ACC with 78.5 points per game, but fell far short of the average for the second consecutive game after scoring a season low in a 61-50 loss to No. 5 Duke Friday.

Florida State (20-7, 10-6) is the only Division I team with five players averaging double figures, but Morgan Toles was the only scorer in double digits with 13 points Sunday.

Uju Ugoka added 21 points and 12 rebounds — nine offensive — off the bench for Virginia Tech, which used an 18-2 run to build a 33-22 halftime edge. The Hokies led by double digits for most of the second half.
