    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Jeff Allen had 18 points and 11 rebounds, including three straight baskets for Virginia Tech in the second half, and the Hokies beat Miami 72-68 Sunday night.

    Erick Green added 15 points and Malcolm Delaney had 14 for the Hokies (14-6, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had to hold on at the finish to win for the 10th time in 12 games.

    The Hurricanes (12-9, 1-6) lost their fourth in a row, but their combined margins of defeat in those games total only 11 points.

    Durand Scott scored 21 points and Malcolm Grant 14 for Miami, three in the second half.

    The Hurricanes closed to within a point with 2:54 left, setting off a wild finish, but Green hit three key free throws in the last 3 minutes and the Hokies held on.

    Garrius Adams added 11 points for the Hurricanes, all in the second half.

    Miami used a 13-5 run to close a 57-48 deficit to 62-61 on Adams' second consecutive 3-pointer with 2:54 to play, but Green scored inside and was fouled.

    He made the free throw, setting up a wild finish.

    Scott drove and scored, and Delaney answered with a 3-pointer, his first points of the second half, to make it 68-63. Scott drew a foul at the other end and made both again, and then Green did the same for the Hokies, keeping them ahead by five with 1:37 remaining.

    Adams' third 3-pointer 10 seconds later made it 70-68, and after Delaney missed a 3-pointer for the Hokies, Miami had two clean looks from behind the arc, and neither went down.

    Delaney, the Hokies' best free-throw shooter, was fouled with a chance to make it a two-possession game, but he missed the first and made the second, giving the Hokies a 71-68 lead.

    When Miami missed another 3, Terrell Bell rebounded for the Hokies, converted the last free throw and it was over.
