Hokies lose huge 2nd half lead, fall to Notre Dame 71-65

It was an epic collapse for the Hokies in Brooklyn

The Fighting Irish overcame a 21-point second half deficit to down 7th-seeded Virginia Tech 71-65 in the second round of the ACC Tournament.

The ACC did that on Thursday, and the results were spectacular. Those same two teams played in last year's ACC title game on that same floor. "We're really just thinking about how we gave a game away".

For a long stretch of time on Wednesday night, it looked like the Irish were headed straight to the NIT. Martinas Geben feel just two points short with an 8 point, 5 rebound night.

Only Bonzie Colson really knows, but he seemed convinced that his banked-in 3-pointer with two minutes left to give Notre Dame a one-point lead over Virginia Tech wasn't an accident. Then Notre Dame found its Brooklyn magic once again.

Virginia Tech had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 21 at one point.

As Matt Farrell drove to the basket he bounced it back out to Rex Pfluger who drew in the help defense before dishing it to the corner. Notre Dame was able to score 17 points off of turnovers and 10 second chance points throughout the game. Six of the Irish's first seven attempts were 3-pointers, and even when T.J. Gibbs made one, Williams clapped.

"We played like crap in that half and we're only down 13", said Brey at the break. ".We came out stronger and better in the second half".

"They made it hard for me to catch it, for me to go work down there", said Colson.

This will be the second game of the season between these two teams.

But the major turning point was a technical foul called on the Hokies Chris Clarke for pushing Matt Farrell out-of-bounds.

In addition, as a precaution, Pick n Pay branded chicken polony, manufactured by Rainbow, is also being withdrawn. On Sunday, Tiger Brands said on their Twitter handle that all Enterprise products would be removed.

Brey had to call timeout after those two early Hokie buckets. However, Virginia has shown the ability to make big shots at key moments this year and are a better offensive team than they have been in the past. Marvin Bagley III was the top scorer from either team with 21 points on 9-for-14 shooting.

With an RPI now sitting at seventy and bad losses against Ball St. and Georgia Tech to name a few, Notre Dame is going to need to do some more resume padding. The Hokies ended the game on a five-of-23 field-goal shooting run.

On the ensuing possession, Notre Dame came through with four total free throws, closing within four points at 54-50. All told, Oklahoma has now lost eight of their last ten and 11 of their last 15 games. Pflueger led both teams with nine rebounds to go with 14 points.

Duke's starting five scored all but seven points with Trent Jr. going for 22 points to lead the way.

"What a great win, what a great gutsy win. And tonight you saw it, the toughness of hanging on in there", Brey said.

"This was a huge game for a lot of reasons".

"We definitely needed some time to figure out, get some chemistry with me being at the point and not being on the wing", Mabrey said.

Notre Dame finished on a 25-11 run.

"There's three things you can control - effort, attitude and energy, and that's what they did, and we got a shot", said Farrell, "We got a shot back at them tomorrow".

Regardless of Miami's struggles so far this season, Aoki and his squad know that the team they will be facing this weekend is not one to be overlooked. "We're a young team, but I think we're a good team, so some days there's going to be some ups and downs and some days we're going to look like a really good college baseball team, so hopefully we get the latter showing up more than the up and down part".
