    PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Malcolm Delaney scored 19 points and Dorenzo Hudson added 17 as Virginia Tech routed Mississippi State 88-57 on Saturday night in the Battle at Atlantis.

    The Hokies (6-4) handed the Bulldogs (7-3) their most lopsided loss of the season while snapping their three-game winning streak. Mississippi State lost to Florida Atlantic by two points and East Tennessee State by one.

    Hudson missed Virginia Tech's previous game, a 79-69 win over Penn State, because of a strained right calf muscle. Jeff Allen added 12 points, Erick Green 11 and Manny Atkins 10.

    The Hokies, who led 44-27 at halftime, shot 50 percent from the field (30 of 60), hit a season-best nine 3-pointers and made 19 of 23 free throws.

    Virginia Tech also had a 39-24 rebounding advantage.

    Ravern Johnson and Renardo Sidney had 12 points each for the Bulldogs, who played their first road game of the season.
