Eddie hit a jumper with 19 seconds remaining in overtime to break a 59-59 tie for the Hokies (7-3). Garrius Adams converted the first of two free throws for the Hurricanes (5-5) with seven seconds left but missed the second. His jumper 21 seconds into overtime gave Miami a 58-56 lead, after which the Hurricanes missed their next nine shots.

Eddie shot 6-of-14 from beyond the arc and has converted six 3-pointers in three games this season.

Virginia Tech moved ahead 59-58 for its first lead since early in the contest after Marshall Wood made a 3-pointer with 4:14 remaining in overtime.

Eddie's corner 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining in regulation tied the game at 56. Miami had a chance to re-take the lead but Davon Reed's 3-point attempt with 14 seconds left failed to hit the rim and went out of bounds. The Hokies had one final regulation attempt at the game-winning basket but Joey Van Zegeren's short bank shot with .03 seconds left was ruled after the buzzer.

Adams scored 14 points and James Kelly finished with 12 points for the Hurricanes.

The Hokies rallied from a 13-point deficit early in the second half with a 14-4 run. Eddie's 3-pointer with 12:31 left capped the surge and cut Miami's lead to 41-37. Virginia Tech again closed to within four points at 43-39-on Van Zegeren's tip-in with 11:57 remaining. Van Zegeren finished with eight points and 10 rebounds.

Adams' 3-pointer with 4:11 remaining put Miami ahead 55-48 before Eddie hit his fourth 3-pointer with 3:24 left and put Virginia Tech within 55-51.

Miami built an eight-point lead at halftime with a brief 6-1 surge early in the second half. Donnavan Kirk's tip-in 16 seconds into the second half gave the Hurricanes their first double-digit lead at 33-23.

The Hurricanes erased a 13-11 deficit and outscored the Hokies, 16-5, during a 7:50 span in the first half. Manu Lecomte scored six points in the Hurricanes' spurt. James Kelly's layup with 3:42 remaining ended the run and gave Miami a 27-18 lead.
