    ATLANTA -- Malcolm Delaney tied a season high with 32 points and Jeff Allen had 17 points with 10 rebounds to help Virginia Tech win its second straight game with an 88-82 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

    The Hokies (23-7, 10-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) are assured of a first-round bye in the league tournament next week in Greensboro, N.C. They stayed in a tie for fourth with Florida State.

    Georgia Tech (19-11, 7-9) has lost two straight and five of seven to put itself in danger of missing the NCAA tournament for the sixth time in 10 seasons under coach Paul Hewitt.

    A foot injury to Virginia Tech guard Dorenzo Hudson kept the Hokies' second-leading scorer on the bench in street clothes as he missed his first game in three seasons.

    Gani Lawal and Derrick Favors scored 18 apiece as the Yellow Jackets finished below .500 in the ACC regular season for the sixth straight year.
