      Iowa loses in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge

      Erick Green scored 24 points and Robert Brown had 18 Tuesday night, leading Virginia Tech to a 95-79 victory against Iowa in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

      The Hokies (6-0) broke away with a 19-1 run spanning the halves, then withstood a run that pulled the Hawkeyes to within 57-54 with 12 minutes left. Virginia Tech then went on a 12-4 burst to rebuild

      the margin.

      The victory, under first-year coach James Johnson, gave the Hokies their first 6-0 start since 1982-83.

      Aaron White had 21 points to lead the Hawkeyes (5-2) and Roy Devyn Marble added 18.




      Virginia Tech tried to take command to start the second half as Green scored the first nine points, extending the Hokies' lead to 55-38 - their largest to that point in what had been a very close

      game.
