Virginia Tech tops Campbell 71-60
BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP)—J.T. Thompson scored a season-high 17 points and Virginia Tech pulled away late for a 71-60 victory against Campbell on Monday night.
Malcolm Delaney shook off a rough shooting night to finish with 15 points and reach the 1,000-point mark for his career with the Hokies (3-0).
Virginia Tech shot 44 percent, had a tough time with a mid-major for the second straight game and were without centerpiece forward Jeff Allen for much of the way with foul trouble. But they came up with enough timely plays to help coach Seth Greenberg claim second place on the school’s career victories list (110).
Jonathan Rodriguez had 19 points on 7-for-10 shooting and Junard Hartley added 10 for the Camels (3-1).
The Camels played host to an Atlantic Coast Conference school for the first time and hung tough for most of the way before falling to 1-27 all-time against the league.
