RADFORD, Va. -- Virginia Tech, behind the long-range shooting of Lindsay Biggs, overcame a sluggish first half to win going away, 78-51, over Radford Wednesday afternoon at the Dedmon Center. Tech improved to 3-2 with its first road victory of season, while Radford dropped to 0-3. Tech now leads the series, 21-9, and has won nine of the last 10 games in the series, including five in a row on the Highlanders home floor.

Radford, after trailing only 33-26 at the half, quickly closed to within five on its initial possession of the second half on a Denay Wood lay up. However, from that point on the Hokies totally dominated the remainder of the game converting Radford turnovers into points to put together a 30-9 run over the next seven minutes. Brittany Gordon (Jr., Howard County, Md.), who scored only two points in the first half, keyed the quick second half start by scoring 12 of the Hokies first 19 points.

Tech, which was shooting under 40 percent through the first four games, blistered the nets by connecting on 52.7 percent (29-55) from the floor. The Hokies also made a living on the inside collecting 44 points in the paint, including 27 second chance points. The Tech bench again proved to be a major contributor outscoring the Highlander bench, 25-7.

Radford, after not leading in any portion of their first two games, led three times early in the contest including their largest lead of the young season, 10-7, at the 14:34 mark. However, at that point Biggs took control scoring 11 points, including two treys, in a 13-0 run. Radford managed to hang tough and closed to within 33-26 at the half.

Biggs (Sr., Midlothian, Va.) finished the game with 22 points and connected on five treys. After opening the season by going 0-of-7 in the first two games behind the arc, she has connected on 13 of her last 23 three-point attempts. Gordon added 14 points while Alyssa Fenyn (Fr., Newark, N.Y.) tied a career high with eight rebounds and Nikki Davis (Jr., Lexington, Ky.) also tied a career high with six assists.

Kymesha Alston led the Highlanders with 12 points while Kaylyn Crosier added 11.

The Hokies return to action on Sat., Nov. 28, in Cassell Coliseum against Elon.
