    BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Malcolm Delaney scored 16 of his 17 points in the first half to lead Virginia Tech to a 71-34 victory over the University of Maryland Baltimore County on Tuesday night.

    The win was Tech?s seventh straight, marking the Hokies? longest winning streak since 1996.

    Delaney scored eight of Tech?s first 14 points, as the Hokies (10-1) jumped out to a 14-0 lead from the onset. They held the Retrievers without a point until Chris De La Rosa hit a short jumper with 10:55 remaining in the half.

    UMBC (1-10) missed its first nine shots from the floor and committed eight turnovers in that span. The Retrievers made just four field goals in the first half (4-for-24) and turned the ball over 13 times.

    Delaney, who entered the contest as the ACC?s leading scorer at 22 points per game, went 6-for-10 from the floor, including 4-for-6 from beyond the 3-point arc.
