BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Tiana Mangakahia scored 27 points, including the tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:37 left in overtime, and No. 14 Syracuse held on for a 75-73 win over Virginia Tech on Sunday.
Syracuse only made one of four free throws in the closing seconds but Digna Strautmane blocked a potential go-ahead 3-pointer with about 10 seconds to play and the Hokies couldn't get up another shot.

The Hokies had 12 3-pointers, but freshman Dara Mabrey, who leads the ACC making 52.3 percent from long range, was 1 of 7.
Syracuse shot just 38 percent, going 6 of 28 on 3-pointers, but turned 25 Hokie turnovers into 28 points. The Orange was 17 of 24 from the foul line but just 4 of 10 after the third quarter. The Hokies were 3 of 5 from the line.
