At least it was a quick half.
In a game without any rhythm, Virginia Tech takes a four point lead into the clubhouse.
Miami finally picked up the pace near the end of the half as they went on a 16-6 run to shave their deficit to two points. Jack McClinton only has two field goals and five points at the break. The star of the game may have more turnovers than points at halftime. Adrien Thomas leads the Canes in scoring with 9 points. Miami is only shooting 33% from the field and 3-point line.
Virginia Tech took about four minutes off near the end of the half to let Miami back in the game. Jeff Allen leads the Hokies with 8 points and Malcolm Delaney has seven at halftime. The Hokies are shooting just under 50% and are getting crushed in the offensive rebound statistic (Miami leads 5-1).
Both teams have yet to make many trips to the free throw line and there’s no one is real foul danger.
There’s a big time upset brewing in Oklahoma City. Baylor, who couldn’t hit a shot much less set up a play against Texas two weeks ago, leads Kansas 27-13 with 7:39 left in the 1st half. There’s a ton of time left in that one, but don’t sleep on the Bears.
