    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Dorenzo Hudson and Malcolm Delaney each scored 21 points to help Virginia Tech snap a three-game losing streak Wednesday night in a 71-59 win over North Carolina State.

    The Hokies (22-7, 9-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) broke open a close game with a 14-2 run to end the first half and took a 31-22 lead at halftime on freshman Manny Atkins' layup at the buzzer.

    N.C. State hit one shot in the final 4:50 of the first half and turned the ball over four times in that span -- which was part of a 13 turnover first half for the Wolfpack.

    N.C. State (16-14, 4-11), which saw a modest two-game winning streak snapped, used a 10-0 run to cut the lead to two, 34-32, on two free throws by Javier Gonzalez with 16:17 remaining. But the Hokies responded by scoring the next 11 points, including nine on three 3-pointers by Delaney.

    N.C. State got no closer than seven the rest of the way.
