Bibbs, Blackshear Jr. help Virginia Tech blast Radford 95-68

Virginia Tech's Ahmed Hill grabs a defensive rebound in front of Radford's Randy Phillips in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Blacksburg Va. Wednesday Dec. 6 2017

Justin Bibbs and Kenny Blackshear led hot-shooting Virginia Tech with 20 points each and the Hokies routed Radford 95-68 on Wednesday at Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Va.

The Hokies (8-1) won their sixth straight game.

Radford came into this game with victories over mid-major programs such as James Madison and East Carolina. Blackshear also had a fantastic game, shooting 4-6 from the floor including a three-pointer, while going a flawless 11 for 11 from the free throw line.

Radford shot 43.6 percent from the field and 15 percent from 3-point range. He is shooting nearly 80 percent from the line this season after shooting 55 percent as a freshman two years ago.

Blackshear spearheaded a very impressive night at the charity stripe for Virginia Tech. Devin Wilson had 5 points in 12 minutes of play and he played well, helping control the ball and giving the team a sense of leadership at times when they needed it most.

"That's the next step that we have to take over the next three of four games".

Not only did Tech excel from the free throw line, but they also were great from the field.

ABOUT VIRGINIA TECH (7-1): The Hokies have five double-digit scorers and are averaging 96.8 points - tops in the nation - while shooting 54.6 percent from the field and a staggering 44.9 percent from the arc. "It's hard to lose games when you are that efficient on the offensive end". "That was our lowest turnover rate. So I think those two things are always tied together".

"Our maturity level keeps going up each week, each game", Robinson said. Virginia Tech hosts Maryland-Eastern Shore on Sunday. The game can be seen online on ACC Network Extra.

Kerry Blackshear was 11-for-11 from the free throw line. The Hokies made 25 of 31 from the line against the Highlanders and have made at least 20 free throws in eight of nine games this season.

Besides the 20 points, Blackshear finished with six rebounds, but perhaps the most important stat was that he was a flawless 11/11 from the foul line.

Bibbs was absolutely spectacular tonight, shooting 8 of 10 from the floor and 4 of 5 from three-point range to score 20 points.

"We're always taking flawless shots, everybody was coming off the screens hard and everybody was moving without the ball really well", said Virginia Tech forward, Kerry Blackshear, Jr. "I thought that, right from the beginning, their first 14 points, 11 of them were because of transition, so they were able to get out and do what they do best - which is push the ball in transition". It is his fifth double figures game of the season. His nine assists were his most this season and only second all-time in his own personal stat book behind his 11 assists last season at Boston College. Bibbs and Blackshear led the team in scoring, but a few other players still contributed. It's the fourth time this season that at least two Virginia Tech players scored at least 20 points in the same game.

"This was our first game with zero, what we deem, bad shots", Williams said. RU shot 40.7 percent from the field in the half.
