DeQuan Jones added 14 points for the 12th-seeded Hurricanes (20-12), who had lost 11 of 14 games coming into the postseason. They advanced to Saturday's semifinals against top seed and No. 4 Duke.

Jeff Allen scored 18 points for fourth-seeded Virginia Tech, which couldn't overcome a miserable performance by ACC leading scorer Malcolm Delaney. He was held to seven points on 3-of-15 shooting, including 0-of-8 from 3-point range.

Delaney missed two shots on the same possession with under a minute left and Virginia Tech (23-8) trailing by one. Scott hit two free throws at the other end, and Terrell Bell missed a tying 3-point attempt to end the Hokies' hopes.
