BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Trevon Hughes hit a leaning floater in the lane with 0.9 seconds left and No. 22 Wisconsin survived a furious rally by Virginia Tech on Monday night, winning 74-72 in the opener of the 10th Annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

The Badgers (6-1) led throughout until A.D. Vassallo's sixth 3-pointer capped a 14-5 run that pulled the Hokies (4-3) even with 7 seconds to play. But with Cassell Coliseum erupting, Hughes hit an off-balance shot in the lane that silenced the crowd as it dropped.

Marcus Landry scored 18 points and Jon Leuer had 17 for the Badgers, who finished 12-for-18 from 3-point range. Hughes added 12 and Jason Bohannon 11, all in the second half.

Vassallo led the Hokies with 30 points, getting 24 in the second half, and Victor Davila had 13. Jeff Allen, the Hokies' leading scorer, fouled out after scoring just two points.
