    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Dorenzo Hudson scored 16 points to lead Virginia Tech to an 84-55 victory over North Florida on Monday night.

    The Hokies (9-3), who won their fourth straight game, broke open a close contest with an 8-0 run to close the first half. Jarell Eddie's 3-pointer with 3 seconds left -- his only points of the half -- gave Virginia Tech a 40-31 halftime lead.

    Virginia Tech then used a 19-5 run over a 7-minute stretch in the second half to put the game away. Erick Green and Robert Brown combined to score 13 of the 19 points in that run.

    North Florida (5-7), which has played a brutal schedule that includes Alabama, Florida, Miami, Ohio State and Kansas State, struggled to take care of the ball against Virginia Tech's man-to-man defense. The Ospreys committed 16 turnovers.

    Hudson, who snapped out of a shooting slump in the Hokies' previous game against Campbell, connected on 6 of 10 from the floor to pace a Tech team that shot 55.2 percent for the game (32 of 58). It marked the fifth time this season that the Hokies have shot better than 50 percent.

    Brown added 14 points for the Hokies, hitting 6 of 10 from the floor, including 2 of 4 beyond the 3-point arc. Dorian Finney-Smith also had 14 and hit two 3-pointers, as the Hokies made seven treys for the game. Green finished with 12 points.

    Travis Wallace paced the Ospreys with 13 points, while Matt Sauey added 11.

    North Florida fell to 0-6 all time against ACC teams.
