ACC Sunday: Virginia wins, VTech competitive in loss to Seminoles

Sunday's ACC results

Virginia 55, N.C. State 47: One of the neat things about these Cavaliers (17-8, 5-6 ACC) is the way they keep responding to frustrating losses one day with spirited efforts the next. Less than 48 hours after a tough loss at North Carolina, Virginia turned N.C. State over 25 times and scored 22 points off those turnovers to hold the Wolfpack off. Ataira Franklin led the way with 20 points and hit back-to-back 3-pointers during the 11-2 second-half run that turned a 27-26 Wolfpack lead into a 38-28 Cavaliers cushion. Virginia is currently in seventh place in the ACC standings one-half game behind Florida State (13-11, 5-5).

Florida State 78, Virginia Tech 60: A respectable showing by the undermanned Hokies (7-16, 3-8 ACC), especially when you consider that on Jan. 8, the Seminoles beat Tech by 35 in Cassell Coliseum. Porschia Hadley came up huge with a career-high 18 poiints, Monet Tellier added 17 and Aerial Wilson chipped in 16 as the Hokies reached the 60-point plateau for just the second time in 15 games. But the Hokies couldn't compete with the Seminoles on the boards as FSU (13-11, 5-5) enjoyed a 49-23 rebounding edge and scored 26 second-chance points.
