    GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Malcolm Delaney scored 15 points and Virginia Tech beat Georgia Tech 59-43 on Thursday night in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

    Jeff Allen added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the sixth-seeded Hokies (20-10), who never trailed.

    They shot nearly 47 percent on 22-of-47 shooting, raced out to an early 19-point lead and made it stand, snapping the irksome two-game losing streak that brought their NCAA tournament candidacy into question.

    Virginia Tech gets another chance to make a case for a spot in the field of 68 on Friday night against third-seeded Florida State in the quarterfinals.

    Glen Rice Jr. scored 14 points to lead 11th-seeded Georgia Tech (13-18). The Yellow Jackets hit a few late shots to avoid their season-low shooting percentage -- they finished 17 of 53 (32 percent) -- but their two-game winning streak was halted.
