Pitt Dismantles Virginia Tech 90-71

Virginia Tech Will Face Syracuse On Tuesday

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia Tech dropped another A.C.C. game on Sunday night falling 90-71 to the Pitt Panthers.  Seth Allen had another huge night for the Hokies, finishing with 28 points.  It was a career high for Allen, who put up 26 in his last effort against Louisville.  Zach LeDay finished one board shy of a double/double. He fouled out late in the contest, but had 12 points and 9 rebounds.  Pittsburgh forward Sheldon Jeter led the Panthers with 23 points and 8 rebounds.  The Hokies kept it close early, but Pittsburgh went on a 10-0 run midway through the first half.  The Hokies never got close again, as the Panthers built on a 9 point halftime lead.  It was the fourth straight loss for the Hokies, but the first blowout since losing to West Virginia 88-63 back in December.

The Hokies have a quick turnaround on this mini road trip, facing the Syracuse Orange on Tuesday night. Syracuse enters the contest with a 15-8 record. The Hokies dropped to 12-10 with the loss.
