2K Classic: Virginia Tech Rebounds With Win Against Washington 103-79”

Freshman phenom Nickeil Alexander-Walker, who is third on the Hokies with 19.5 points per game, scored 20 on the Huskies and was also a flawless 6-for-6 from the free throw line.

Jaylen Nowell scored 21 points to lead Washington (2-2), which lost its second straight.

Not 24 hours after Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams publicly questioned his team's character, the Hokies were dominant in the blowout. SLU built a 36-29 half time lead and added to it in the second half.

Virginia Tech entered Thursday's contest averaging 121.5 points but was no match for the hard-nosed defense of Saint Louis.

The Hokies participated in the four-team tournament this weekend in New York City and were dealt a blow in the game against St. Louis, in which they only shot 40.4 percent from the field. Washington would only make 27 of 63 shots from the field (43 percent) and misfired on 13 of 18 3s. The Hokies finished shooting 68.2 percent on three-pointers, their best mark of the season.

The 2017 2K Classic was a tale of two games for the Virginia Tech Hokies.

IOWA STATE 104, APP STATE 98: Donovan Jackson scored a career-high 26 points while Iowa State overcame its shooting struggles to beat Appalachian State in the relocated Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Washington: Following Thursday night's loss to Providence, first-year coach Mike Hopkins said he saw positives. Washington was able to cut the lead to as few as 22 points in the second half, but Tech continued to score and took the 103-79 victory.

Virginia: With the win, the Hokies improved to 15-6 all-time at Madison Square Garden.

Washington: The Huskies are 0-2 all-time against Virginia Tech. Washington dropped an 88-77 decision to the Hokies on December 21, 1974, in the first matchup.
