    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Zabian Dowdell had 18 points and Coleman Collins added 13 to lead Virginia Tech past Montana 77-56 Friday in the Old Spice Classic at Disney World.

    Jamon Gordon scored eight of his 11 points on the night in succession as Virginia Tech (3-1) built a 10-0 lead. Montana (1-4) responded with a 9-2 run to pull within three, but the Grizzlies drew no closer the rest of the way.

    Dowdell scored nine consecutive points late in the first half for Virginia Tech, which led 36-24 at the break. Collins netted seven in a row to put the Hokies ahead by 18 early in the second half.

    Virginia Tech took its biggest lead at 70-44 on a slam dunk by Gordon with 4:45 remaining.

    Jordan Hasquet finished with 12 points and a dozen rebounds, and Matt Dlouhy also scored 12 to lead Montana. Matt Martin contributed 11 points, four assists and a steal in 13 minutes off the bench for the Grizzlies.

    Virginia Tech held a 27-4 scoring advantage off turnovers and outshot Montana 55 percent to 41 from the field.
