From combined dispatches


Virginia Tech 67, Boston College 48

BLACKSBURG, Va. — A.D. Vassallo scored all 12 of his points in the second half, including seven during an 18-4 run, and the Hokies (17-11, 8-6 ACC) enhanced their postseason resume with their third consecutive win, beating the Eagles (13-13, 4-9) last night at Cassell Coliseum.

The Hokies led 30-25 when Jeff Allen scored underneath with 18:11 to play, sparking the big burst. Virginia Tech continually limited the Eagles to one shot in the run and beat them to all the loose balls.

Marymount 70, Hood 77

FREDERICK, Md. — Elvis Ellis and Fred Stanback had 16 points each and the sixth-seeded Saints (15-11) beat the No. 3 seed Blazers (15-11) in the first round of the CAC tournament.

Marymount will travel to Mary Washington tomorrow for the semifinals.


Syracuse 68, Georgetown 67

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Erica Morrow hit an improbable 3-pointer with 18.4 seconds left to give the Orange (21-6, 9-5 Big East) a win over the Hoyas (14-13, 4-10).

Syracuse trailed 67-65 after Aminata Diop made one of two foul shots with 41 seconds left. Morrow worked off a screen and launched a ball from the left wing. Morrow’s shot hit the back iron and went straight up into the air, above the shot clock and back through the hoop for the deciding basket.

Diop and Karee Houlette led Georgetown with 12 points each.

Bowie State 67, Virginia Union 59

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Freshman Lakisha Walker scored 12 points to lead the second-seeded Bulldogs (22-5) past the Panthers (4-23) in the quarterfinals of the CIAA tournament.

Bowie State advances to the semifinals Friday, when it will play the winner of last night’s J.C. Smith-St. Paul’s quarterfinal.

Marymount 71, Villa Julie 37

Kathleen Brown had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Saints (22-4) to a win over the Mustangs (7-19) in the CAC quarterfinals.

Second-seeded Marymount will be home against Salisbury in tomorrow’s semifinals.
