BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Erick Green scored 23 points to lead Virginia Tech past Mississippi Valley State 70-49 Monday night.

The Hokies (8-1), coming off a last-second loss at West Virginia on Saturday, took control with an 18-4 run that spanned both halves. They trailed only once, falling behind 22-20 after Mississippi Valley State's Matt Smith scored the second of back-to-back baskets with 6:28 left in the first half.
