    BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Coleman Collins scored 20 points and Bryant Matthews had 14 and 10 rebounds Wednesday night, lifting surprising Virginia Tech to an 80-65 victory against Georgetown and a rare two-game winning streak in the Big East.

    The Hokies (10-10, 3-6 Big East), coming off a 69-57 victory against No. 24 Providence followed by a weeklong break, led 36-27 at halftime and shot 50 percent after halftime and converted 20 of 28 free throws to keep the Hoyas from rallying.

    Georgetown (13-7, 4-6) closed to within 51-44 with 13:06 to play, but two baskets by Collins and a 3-pointer by Zabian Dowdell gave the Hokies a 7-0 response and the lead never got below eight again as Virginia Tech also dominated the backboards, 37-26.

    Dowdell had 15 points, including 13 in the second half, and added six rebounds and four assists. Markus Sailes scored 12 and Jamon Gordon 11 for the Hokies.

    Gerald Riley led the Hoyas with 24 points and Brandon Bowman had 15.

    Matthews, the Big East scoring leader with a 23.6 average, was limited to 24 minutes by foul trouble. He also had four steals, also improving his league-best 2.47 average.
