The Hokies led 22-12 at the end of the first quarter, but the Patriots cut the lead down to three (32-29) at the break. Tech came out firing in the third quarter, connecting on 64.7 percent from the field, including an impressive 77.8 percent (7-of-9) from outside the arc to outscore Mason 29-14 in the frame and go on top 61-43. Mason held the advantage in the final quarter, but it was not enough to overcome the Hokies as Tech rolled to the win.
