Virginia Tech Plays Florida State in ACC Quarterfinal Action

Virginia Tech Plays Florida State in ACC Quarterfinal Action

Pitt: Hard to believe after the Panthers managed only 105 points in losing twice in four days to Virginia, but this same team hung 88 on the Cavaliers - the most by any Virginia opponent - in early January.

U.Va., the tournament's No. 6 seed, used a 15-5 run midway through the second half to produce a comfortable cushion on its way to a 75-63 second-round victory against No. 14 Pittsburgh. "I told them in the locker room after the game, and I think about the 12-minute mark, 'We've got to tighten it up defensively, ' and they did, but then London made some big shots".

The Cavs (22-9) are seeded sixth and advance to meet third-seeded and 22nd-ranked Notre Dame in Thursday quarterfinal at 9 p.m.

The Virginia Tech Hokies are22-9 this season and they earned their way into this game with a win over Wake Forest on Wednesday. Several times against Virginia, Johnson put the ball on the ground, driving to the hoop.

"I think that they kind of took it upon themselves to approach this a little bit differently, a little better", Stallings said. "It's my last one, last go around". "It's my last go around so I'm just going out, having fun, and trying to lead these guys".

"I was going to actually start Darius, but the plan was to go in that direction to get them more minutes", Bennett said in Raleigh. They contribute in that category, as well. Three other starters for the Panthers scored double-digit points, including Jeter (14), senior guard Jamel Artis (11) and redshirt senior Chris Jones (11). In their time with the Panthers, they won just one NCAA Tournament game and it seems that, for now, the program's best basketball days are behind it.

Turkey, Russia, US to coordinate vs IS
Turkey's military announced the meeting in a brief statement . The aim is to prevent them coming under Turkish control.

"They grind the game down, " Pitt coach Kevin Stallings said. "On top of that, we're going to handle some weather situations this weekend, but these are the types of adversity that we want to encourage and take head on". Our inability to keep them away from effective three-point shooting, I thought, really cost us for the whole game really and ended up being the difference. Sole focus was, you know, just winning by any means.

Pittsburgh (15-17) fell behind 34-23 at halftime, struggling to hit shots. From the floor, Virginia shot 46% from the field and 50% from three while holding Pitt to 35% and 33%, respectively.

Forward Michael Young, who sat out the first 10 minutes of Saturday's loss in Charlottesville, went 1 for 6 from the floor in the first half and committed three of the Panthers' turnovers in the first 20 minutes.

A year ago in the ACC tournament, Cameron Johnson had his breakout performance with a 24-point performance against Syracuse that was the springboard to his successful 2016-17 season.

Pitt tried to extend the game down 12 with 2:30 to play by fouling, but despite a front end of a one-and-one miss by Devon Hall, the Hoos handled the press easily and converted from the line to put the game out of reach.
