BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Malcolm Delaney scored 22 points to help Virginia Tech rally past Maryland 91-83 on Tuesday night. 

The Hokies (17-7, 7-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have won 13 of their past 16 games, trailed 76-75 after a basket by Maryland’s Jordan Williams with 5:21 remaining. But behind Delaney and Erick Green, Virginia Tech went on a 9-0 run to take control of the game. Green hit a 3-pointer in that run, and Delaney hit six free throws, including two with 1:14 left that gave the Hokies an 84-76 lead. 

Maryland (16-10, 5-6) stopped the run with a 3-pointer by Dino Gregory with 1:09 left. The Terps cut the lead to 87-83 with 33 seconds left on two Terrell Stoglin free throws. 

But Delaney hit two free throws with 28 seconds left push the lead back to six, and after Stoglin missed a 3-pointer, Delaney added two more with 14 seconds to go to account for the final margin.
