Hokies cruise; Patriots fall to Maryland

Sunday's results:

Virginia Tech 70, NC Central 52
The Hokies (3-6) overcame a sluggish start to roll in the first athletic event held on campus since Thursday's fatal shooting. We’re still all a little numb from what happened the other day,” said coach Dennis Wolff. “I think the girls deserve a lot of credit with everyone being as upset as they are about Officer (Deriek) Crouse, and then still being in the middle of exams." Alyssa Fenyn and LaTorri Hines-Allen combined for 29 points and 18 rebounds. Tech will take a week off before heading to Florida for a pair.

No. 5 Maryland 78, George Mason 50
Jeri Porter acknowledged postgame that she knew what the Patriots were in for, and that was a matchup against one of the elite teams in the nation. The Terps led by as many as 40 shooting 46 percent from field, while the Patriots shot a miserable 24 percent. Taleia Moton scored 16 and Janaa Pickard 12 and GMU was 10-of-10 from the free-throw line. Not surprisingly paint points went to Maryland 44-10. "We didn't do a good job of staying patient in this game and putting the ball in the basket," Porter said. The Patriots (6-3) take off the next 11 days for exams.

The Norfolk State-Longwood game was canceled after an official collapsed early in the first half.
