ACC Tournament 2012, Virginia Tech Vs. Duke: Hokies' Season Ends With 60-56 Loss

The Virginia Tech Hokies ACC tournament ended on Friday night, as Seth Greenberg's club fell 60-56 to the Duke Blue Devils in the quarterfinals in Atlanta. It was yet another close game that the Hokies could not pull out, ending a brutally frustrating season in Blacksburg.

One night after lighting up Clemson with 24 points, second team All-ACC member Erick Green led the Hokies with 16 points. He was the only starter for Seth Greenberg in double figures. Robert Brown added 16 points for Va. Tech, who struggled to get much rhythm going on the offensive end. The Hokies shot just 30 percent from the floor and it was a struggle all evening. Va. Tech cut the Duke lead to two early in the second, but they would never threaten thereafter.

Duke now moves on to the semifinals, where they will face the winner of the Florida State and and Miami game which will wrap up today's action from Philips Arena.
