Virginia Tech wrestling wins ACC team title

Next up: A rematch with sixth-seeded Virginia (21-9, 11-7) on Wednesday night at Barclays Center.

With their (very, very, very slim) NCAA hopes still alive, the Panthers will now face the No. 21 University of Virginia Cavaliers on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST. We got a couple of those plays.

The team's top two scorers returned to starting five and hit some big shots late. "We're going to need me and Cameron to be the older guys and step up and lead".

Pittsburgh (15-17) fell behind 34-23 at halftime, struggling to hit shots. Forward Michael Young had seven points in the first seven minutes of the half.

With 8:15 left, he sunk a 3 from the corner near U.Va.'s bench.

Jaron Blossomgame led Clemson (17-15) with 19 points and eight rebounds. "He was on his run".

"ACC titles are always fun, they're always nice to have so I'm just proud of the way we performed I'm proud of the way the coaches prepared our guys and we're going to enjoy this for a day or two and then we're going to move on", explained interim coach Tony Robie.

The Panthers began to claw their way back in the second half.

Detective Sergeant Swinton told the court the younger son was screaming during the incident. The nine-year-old underwent surgery in hospital, and is now in a stable condition.

The Hoos led for the majority of the first half, getting off to a quick start behind three pointers from Guy, Ty Jerome and Darius Thompson.

"I think that they kind of took it upon themselves to approach this a little bit differently, a little better", Stallings said. "We just didn't guard them as well as they guarded us, and as a result, we weren't able to win". "It was just a lucky play, honestly".

Guy tied his career-high with 20 points in the game, looking poised and confident in his first collegiate postseason match.

No. 14 seed Pittsburgh kept its season alive with a 61-59 win over No. 11 seed Georgia Tech in Tuesday night's first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. After Artis responded with a 3, Perrantes made it two in a row from long range in a span of 56 seconds.

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. Virginia Tech is averaging 79.6 points per game and they are shooting 49.3 percent from the floor and 40.6 percent from beyond the 3-point arc while defensively they are allowing 74.4 points and their opponents are shooting 44.6 percent. Three other starters for the Panthers scored double-digit points, including Jeter (14), senior guard Jamel Artis (11) and redshirt senior Chris Jones (11).

Mississippi State now has won two straight for the first time since winning at Arkansas on January 10, then beating Texas A&M on January 14. I think we all have confidence in his game.

"It's my last one, last go around", Parrantes said. "I pulled them all in and told them how much I love them, and I just want to go out there and go out and do what we do best". "If you're not really willing to go out there and dive for it, what are you doing at this point?"
