Hokies take OT win over 'Canes in ACC opener

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Jarrell Eddie scored 24 points to lead the Virginia Tech men to a 61-60 overtime victory against Miami in the opening Atlantic Coast Conference game for both teams on Sunday.

Eddie hit a jumper with 19 seconds remaining in overtime to break a 59-59 tie for the Hokies (7-3). Garrius Adams converted the first of two free throws for the Hurricanes (5-5) with seven seconds left but missed the second.

Eddie's corner 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining in regulation tied it at 56. Miami had a chance to re-take the lead, but Davon Reed's 3-point attempt with 14 seconds left failed to hit the rim and went out of bounds. Virginia Tech's Joey Van Zegeren made a short bank shot with .03 seconds left for the chance to win in regulation, but it was ruled after the buzzer.

Adams scored 14 points to lead Miami and James Kelly finished with 12.
