Mark Berman back at Cassell, where Virginia Tech’s season ended with a 79-76 OT loss to Wichita St. in the second round of the NIT.
The Hokies played the final 4:36 of regulation and all of OT without either Jeff Allen (Fouled out) or Victor Davila (injury).
With VT down 78-76, Paul Debnam inbounded the ball with 2.6 seconds left. It looked like Malcolm Delaney, dribbling the ball near the scorers’ table as he tried to get near midcourt, might have been fouled by Toure Murry. But the official instead ruled that Delaney had stepped out of bounds, ending the Hokies’ season and Delaney’s college career.
