CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Chanette Hicks and Samantha Hill scored 16 points each and No. 18 Virginia Tech remained undefeated with a 78-69 victory over Clemson on Sunday.

Regan Magarity had 14 points and 13 rebounds for her seventh double-double this season for the Hokies (15-0, 2-0 ACC). Sidney Cook added 13 points and eight rebounds.

Danielle Edwards scored 18 points and Aliyah Collier added 10 points and 13 rebounds for her fourth double-double this season for the Tigers (11-5, 0-3).

Clemson outshot and outrebounded Virginia Tech but had 18 turnovers. The Hokies went 18 of 24 at the free-throw line to Clemson’s 7-of-10.

Magarity scored eight points when the Hokies took a 17-9 lead, which reached 16 in the third quarter. The Hokies didn’t have a field goal in the final 4:56 but a 9-of-12 finish at the line held off Clemson, which was within six with 46 seconds left.

The Hokies are off to their second-best start behind only the 18-0 start by the 1998-99 squad.
