Eddie made 6 of 15 from the floor, including two 3-pointers, and he also grabbed 10 rebounds for his second straight double-double.

The Hokies (4-3) also got 13 points from Marshall Wood and 12 points from Will Johnston. Johnston hit four 3-pointers and Wood hit three 3's as the Hokies hit 12 3-pointers.

Furman (2-3) scored the first basket of the game on a jumper by Stephen Croone, but the Hokies answered with an 18-1 run to take control of the game and never trailed again.

The Paladins missed 12 straight shots after Croone's game-opening jumper. Furman shot just 20 percent from the floor in the first half (5 of 24) and missed all six of its 3-point attempts.

Virginia Tech gradually built the lead to 22 points in the second half following a Wood 3-pointer with 14:30 left that gave the Hokies a 43-21 lead. Furman cut the lead to nine points on two occasions, the final coming on a Croone 3-pointer with 7:40 remaining.

But the Hokies' Johnston answered with a 3-pointer with 7:11 remaining to start a 15-2 run that pushed the lead back to 66-44, and the Hokies weren't threatened again.

Virginia Tech made 12 of 30 from beyond the 3-point arc, marking the fourth straight game in which the Hokies have made at least 10 3-pointers. They shot 47 percent from the floor for the game (28 of 59).

Croone led the Paladins with 27 points. He hit 8 of 14 from the floor and 10 of 11 from the free-throw line. Larry Wideman added 13 points for the Paladins, who only had four players score in the game.

The Hokies played without freshman guard Ben Emelogu, who sat out with a concussion. Emelogu was averaging 14 points per game.
