Hudson’s 3-point heave lifts Virginia Tech to OT win over Georgia Tech
Question of the Day
BLACKSBURG, Va. — Dorenzo Hudson subbed into the game on the final play to be a passer. He ended it on the floor under a pile of his teammates as the savior.
With 3.5 seconds to go, Hudson inbounded the ball to Jarell Eddie, who fumbled the pass and got trapped near the sideline. He pushed a pass out to Hudson, who heaved in the game-winner as the horn went off.
“I was hoping it’d go in,” said Hudson, a senior playing through an assortment of injuries, including a knee that may require surgery after the season. “I never seen the ball go in. When I fell, my teammates started jumping on me so I knew the ball went in.”
“It’s unfortunate. We don’t trap,” Gregory said. “The trap in the corner led to the open shot. It’s difficult to fight the temptation to go down there. We’re a pretty good defensive team and in crucial situations you need to stick to your defense.”
The Yellow Jackets had taken a 73-71 lead on an improbable falling-down floater in the lane by junior guard Mfon Udofia with under six seconds to play in overtime.
“It’s a tough shot, but obviously he’s made that shot many times before,” Gregory said. “It was a pretty good decision because with only nine seconds left on the clock, you want to get that ball up on the glass and have a chance for a second shot.”
Hudson’s heroics dropped Georgia Tech to 0-6 all-time at Cassell and gave the Hokies (15-12, 4-8) their third straight home win, a nice bit of momentum going into Tuesday’s game in Blacksburg against rival Virginia.
Junior guard Erick Green led the Hokies with 14 points. Maybe more significantly, Virginia Tech got scoring from some other sources too.
Sophomore forward Cadarian Raines scored 13 points, Eddie added 12 and freshman guard Robert Brown scored 10.
It was an impressive effort coming just one day after a tough-to-swallow loss at Florida State.
