AREA MEN

Wisconsin 74, Virginia Tech 72: Trevon Hughes hit a leaning floater in the lane with 0.9 seconds left Monday night as the Badgers survived a furious rally by the Hokies in the opener of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge in Blacksburg, Va.

The Badgers (6-1) led throughout until A.D. Vassallo’s sixth 3-pointer capped a 14-5 run that pulled the Hokies (4-3) even with seven seconds to play. But Hughes hit an off-balance shot in the lane that silenced the crowd.

Marcus Landry scored 18 points and Jon Leuer had 17 for the Badgers, who finished 12-for-18 from 3-point range. Hughes added 12 and Jason Bohannon 11, all in the second half.

Vassallo led the Hokies with 30 points, getting 24 in the second half, and Victor Davila had 13. Jeff Allen, the Hokies’ leading scorer, fouled out after scoring just two points.

Mount St Mary’s 57, American 52: Jeremy Goode scored 22 of his career-high 29 points in the second half and the Mountaineers won at Bender Arena for the first time in 43 years.

The Mountaineers (3-2) trailed by as many as nine in the first half, scoring just two points through the first 9 1/2 minutes. The Mount took a 49-39 lead with 4:31 remaining in the half when Goode capped a 7-0 run with a 3-pointer and a transition layup.

Liberty 69, George Mason 66 (OT): Seth Curry hit a jumper and sank two free throws in the last 41 seconds of overtime to help the Flames beat the Patriots in Lynchburg, Va.

The Flames (5-1), who were outscored 37-29 in the second half after leading by eight at the break, scored the last seven points in overtime.

Canisius 70, Howard 46: Greg Logins had 22 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Golden Griffins to a victory against the Bison at Burr Gymnasium.

Logins scored 10 points as Canisius (3-3) took control with a 17-4 run late in the first half. Logins shot 8-for-16 and was perfect on six free throws in the Golden Griffins’ first stop on a five-game road trip.

Logins grabbed 12 of his rebounds on the offensive end as Canisius outrebounded Howard 56-25.
