Halftime notes from BC game

Virginia Tech built a 38-29 lead at halftime thanks largely to a stifling defensive effort against Boston College's flex offense.

While the Eagles shot 52.6 percent from the field, many of their possessions were empty because they had difficulty finding an offensive tempo as the Hokies forced 11 turnovers. The Eagles' leading scorer, Joe Trapani, was limited to 2 points on 1-for-4 shooting.

The Hokies used a 15-2 run late in the first half to pull away from Boston College. Their largest lead was by 14 points with 3 minutes and 31 seconds remaining. Virginia Tech shot 44.8 percent from the field and scored 12 points off of fast-break opportunities.

Guards Terrell Bell and Dorenzo Hudson each scored 9 points in the first half to lead Virginia Tech. Guard Malcolm Delaney added 8 points and 3 assists.
