BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Dorenzo Hudson made a 3-pointer as time expired in overtime to lift Virginia Tech to a 75-74 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets took a 73-71 lead on a jumper by Mfon Udofia with 5 seconds remaining, and Virginia Tech called a timeout with 3.5 seconds left.

After the timeout, Jarell Eddie caught the ball in the corner and nearly lost control. But he passed the ball out of a double team and found Hudson, who launched the game-winning shot for the Hokies (15-12, 4-8 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Erick Green finished with 14 points and could've won the game in regulation for Virginia Tech, but his jumper missed. Cadarian Raines added a career-high 13 points for the Hokies, who lost on a last-second shot by Florida State on Thursday.

Georgia Tech (9-17, 2-10), which has lost nine of its past 10 games and 13 of 15, got a game-high 18 points from Kammeon Holsey.

The Yellow Jackets played the game without leading scorer and rebounder Glen Rice, Jr., who was suspended indefinitely by coach Brian Gregory on Friday for undisclosed reason.

Rice, who was suspended for three games earlier in the season by Gregory for violating team rules, was averaging 13 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
