CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP)– Malcolm Delaney scored 29 points to lead Virginia Tech to an 88-83 overtime victory over Miami on Sunday.

Delaney’s 3-pointer with 1:49 left in overtime gave the Hokies (14-5, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) the lead for good at 84-83. A.D. Vasallo also scored 28 points.

Vasallo and Dorenzo Hudson each converted two free throws in the final 26 seconds to secure Virginia Tech’s fifth-straight victory.

Dwayne Collins scored 23 to lead Miami (14-5, 3-3), while Brian Asbury added a season-high 21 points and Jack McClinton contributed 20 points. It was the first time three Hurricanes scored 20-or-more points in the same game since a Jan. 7, 2006 win over Maryland.

Collins’ short field goal with 7:03 remaining put the Hurricanes ahead 63-57, but Virginia Tech answered with a 9-0 run, including a pair of 3s from Vassallo.

Brian Asbury‘s 3-pointer with 25 seconds remaining in regulation tied the game for Miami at 77-all. Delaney missed a possible game-winning jumper with 2 seconds left for Virginia Tech, sending the game into OT.
