Hokies Drop Deacs, 62-52

Virginia Tech Head Coach Dennis Wolff - USA TODAY Sports

Strong second halves from Alyssa Fenyn and Monet Tellier helped Virginia Tech spoil Senior Night at Wake Forest.

WINSTON-SALEM--Senior Night at the Joel began with a celebration but ended with a whimper as Virginia Tech defeated Wake Forest 62-52 on Thursday night. The Deacons were a dreadful 18-58 from the floor and never got into an offensive flow against a pesky Hokie defense.

The Hokies (10-18, 4-13 ACC) were led by Alyssa Fenyn, who scored 13 of her 16 points in the second half while Monet Tellier contributed 14 points and 8 rebounds. Virginia Tech never trailed in an overall lackluster display from both teams. Wake Forest (12-17, 5-12 ACC) turned the ball over 20 times and never could solve an attacking Virginia Tech defense.

The Deacons were led by Chelsea Douglas' 18 points and the third double-double of the season for Sandra Garcia (13 points, 12 rebounds). Wake Forest had more points in the paint and points off turnovers but could simply not get shots to fall. The offense was so stagnant that the Deacs only had three players in scoring column at the half. Senior guard Lakevia Boykin finished with 2 points on the night and played much of the second half wearing a knee brace.

The Deacons wrap up the regular season at Maryland on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and then will wait to be seeded for next week's ACC Tournament in Greensboro.
