    ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Senior guard Malcolm Delaney scored 19 points and Virginia Tech won its third straight game, edging St. Bonaventure 76-68 in overtime on Thursday night.

    The Hokies led by as many as 18 points in the first half and were up 41-28 at halftime.

    St. Bonaventure's leading scorer, Andrew Nicholson, scored eight of the team's first 10 points in the second half as the Bonnies quickly cut the lead to 43-38.

    The Hokies fended off the Bonnies the rest of the half until Ogo Adegboye sank a 3-pointer with 20 seconds remaining to tie the score at 65 and force overtime.

    Virginia Tech's Manny Atkins hit a 3-pointer to begin the overtime as the Hokies outscored a tired St. Bonaventure 11-3 in the period.

    Senior forward Jeff Allen added 18 points and nine rebounds and sophomore guard Erick Green scored 15 and had five steals in a nonconference matchup for Virginia Tech (7-4).

    Nicholson, a junior forward, scored 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Bonnies (6-4). He left the game briefly in the second half with an injury to his right leg, then injured the same leg again in the final minute of overtime and did not return.

    Adegboye finished with 17 points and Michael Davenport scored all 14 of his points in the second half and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Bonnies, whose previous game was a 112-107 four-OT victory over Ohio on Dec. 18.

    Virginia Tech led 7-0 to start the game and built a 21-5 lead following back-to-back 3-pointers by Terrell Bell and Delaney midway through the half. The Bonnies turned the ball over seven times in that span, but only seven more times the rest of the game.

    Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg said Thursday that Dorenzo Hudson and Cadarian Raines have been sidelined by foot injuries. Both will be eligible for a medical redshirt and will return next year.
