Virginia Tech finds offensive groove in second half, routs Campbell
BLACKSBURG, Va. — Virginia Tech’s men’s basketball team walked onto the court to start the second half Saturday with a three-point lead over Campbell.
Less than five minutes later, the Hokies were in cruise control.
After a tightly played first half, Tech outscored the Fighting Camels 15-0 to start the second half and never looked back in an 85-60 win.
Jarell Eddie, who had no points in the first half, sparked the scoring flurry with a jumper to begin the second, added a 3-pointer a few minutes later and capped the run with another jumper at the 15:18 mark.
Just like that, the Hokies had a 47-29 lead.
Five Hokies scored in double figures including Victor Davila, who was also scoreless in the first half.
The Hokies also turned around their shooting as well.
After shooting just 37 percent in the first half, Tech shot a staggering 73.1 percent in the second.
So why the drastic change?
“I felt like the way we played defensively in the second half, the momentum shifted toward us, away from the other team,” Eddie said.
Green said defense allowed the Hokies to score some easy buckets.
“We made stops,” Green said. “We got out and ran and executed on the offensive end.”
