ANN ARBOR (AP) — Zach LeDay scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half, and Virginia Tech rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to beat Michigan 73-70 on Wednesday night.

The Hokies (6-1) trailed 67-63 late in the second half before a 3-pointer by Justin Bibbs started an 8-0 run.

Duncan Robinson’s 3-pointer with 42 seconds left pulled Michigan (5-2) to within a point, and an offensive foul on Seth Allen gave the Wolverines the ball back. But Michigan was out of timeouts, and Zak Irvin’s tough jumper missed.

Robinson had a chance to tie it, but his 3-pointer from the left wing missed at the buzzer.

Irvin led Michigan with 23 points.
