Virginia Tech Upsets Duke On Last-Second Putback [VIDEO]

BLACKSBURG, VA (WWJ) – The madness is already arriving, and it’s not even March.

Virginia Tech beat No. 5 Duke Monday night, thanks to a late tip-in from Chris Clarke, potentially giving the Hokies a quality win worthy of punching their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.

The Hokies (21-9, 10-7 ACC) were projected as a 10-seed by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi and CBS bracketologist Jerry Palm before beating the Blue Devils for their fourth win against a ranked team this season.

They trailed by as many as nine points in the second half and scored the final six points of the game over the last two minutes to secure the win.

The Blue Devils’ loss reassures us that the NCAA Tournament is going to be full of solid teams capable of making a run, but no one dominant team.
