GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Shawnice Wilson scored 17 points and Miami pulled away to beat Virginia Tech 45-39 on Thursday in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Morgan Stroman added 13 rebounds for the fifth-seeded Hurricanes (21-9). They will play fourth-seeded Florida State (21-8) in Friday's quarterfinals.

Uju Ugoka and Monet Tellier had 11 points apiece and Alyssa Fenyn added 10 for the 12th-seeded Hokies (10-20).

Ugoka's jumper with 4:14 left pulled Virginia Tech to 35-31, but the Hokies missed six of their next seven shots.

Stefanie Yderstrom hit a 3-pointer three possessions later to put Miami up by seven, and the Hurricanes iced it by hitting 7 of 12 free throws in the final 90 seconds.

Miami had 20 turnovers and shot just 28.6 percent (14 of 49). The Hokies shot 26.9 percent (14 for 52), turned it over 17 times and had just eight points at halftime.
