Posted

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Tiana Mangakahia scored 27 points, including the tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:37 left in overtime, and the 14th-ranked Syracuse women’s basketball team held on for a 75-73 win over Virginia Tech on Sunday.

Syracuse only made one of four free throws in the closing seconds but Digna Strautmane blocked a potential go-ahead 3-pointer with about 10 seconds to play and the Hokies couldn’t get up another shot.

Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi added 18 points for the Orange (13-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have won seven straight. Strautmane had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Taylor Emery had 27 points for Virginia Tech (12-2, 0-2), which won its first 13 before losing its ACC opener at Miami. Regan Magarity added 18 points and 10 rebounds and Aisha Sheppard had 13.
