    LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Virginia Tech's Coleman Collins had 16 points and Jamon Gordon added 12 points Saturday night as the Hokies overcame a nine-point halftime deficit to beat Stanford 59-52 in the nightcap of the Las Vegas Showdown.

    UNLV beat Texas Tech 84-73 in the first half of the doubleheader.

    Virginia Tech held Stanford to two points over the final 3:43 and Markus Sailes hit a 3-pointer with 23.8 seconds to play to stretch the lead to six.

    Virginia Tech (8-3) opened the second half with a 13-4 run to the tie the game at 34.

    There were three ties and five lead changes before the Hokies took the lead for good with 3:04 to play on a driving layup by Zabian Dowdell.

    Sailes added 10 and Dowdell had nine for the Hokies, who turned the ball over only seven times.

    Chris Hernandez had a game-high 17 points for Stanford (2-4), but could not convert the front end of two separate one-and-one free throw opportunities down the stretch.

    Matt Haryasz added 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Cardinal.

    Stanford trailed only once in the first half, falling behind 15-14 on a jumper from Virginia Tech's A.D. Vassallo with 8:59 to play.

    But the Cardinal used 3-pointers from Hernandez and Tim Morris in scoring the next 13 points to take a 27-15 lead with 2:44 to play.
