Ahmed Hill scored 17 points and Virginia Tech shot 50 percent from the floor in the second half to spark a come-from-behind 66-63 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. Seth Allen made a 3-pointer with 1:08 remaining for the Hokies and Pitt missed three 3-point attempts on the final possession. Virginia Tech (18-7, 7-6 ACC) trailed the entire first half, but caught up with a seven-point possession in the second. Michael Young was given an intentional foul and Hill made both free throws. Justin Bibbs then hit a 3-pointer to give the Hokies their first lead. Pitt (14-12, 3-10) got out to a big lead early thanks to shooting 69.2 percent from 3-point range in the first half. Cameron Johnson was 4 of 5 from beyond the arc before the break as the Panthers built an 11-point lead. Johnson finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double. Virginia Tech played its first game without top rebounder Chris Clarke, who will miss the rest of the season with an ACL injury.
