Virginia Tech basketball: Hokies drop a heartbreaker to South Carolina, 79-77

The Virginia Tech Hokies fell to 1-1 on the season after Friday’s 79-77 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

After an early lead, South Carolina took over midway through the first half and went into halftime holding a 38-31 lead.

In the second half, the Gamecocks continued their hot shooting, as every time the Hokies would rally, South Carolina would have an answer to keep the Hokies within arm’s reach. However, Virginia Tech guard Sean Pedulla was a one-man show for the Hokies in the final 20 minutes, scoring 22 of his 26 points in the second half.
