The Virginia Tech women's basketball team made 15 of 25 three-point attempts and rallied for an 81-73 victory over Ohio State at the West Palm Beach Invitational in Florida.
Dorka Juhasz scored a season-high 27 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Ohio State (4-5). Carmen Grande added nine points, a season-high nine assists and five rebounds. Jensen Caretti scored a season-high 11 points.
The Buckeyes also shot well from three-point range, making 9 of 16 shots.
Ohio State coach Kevin McGuff said the Buckeyes had issues late in the game not switching on ball screens on defense and missing layups and open players inside on offense.
"Today we really competed and played hard throughout, but (we had) too many mental errors for us to beat a good team like Virginia Tech," McGuff said.
Virginia Tech made 5 of 6 three-point attempts to open the game and took a 15-11 lead, but OSU got seven points from Juhasz and led 26-20 after the first quarter.
The Buckeyes built the lead to 44-28 with two minutes left in the second quarter, but the Hokies (12-0) closed the quarter on an 8-0 run.
"I thought we gave them a little bit too much momentum heading into the second half," McGuff said.
Virginia Tech went on an 11-0 run midway through the fourth quarter to retake the lead for good.
The Buckeyes have concluded nonconference play and open their Big Ten schedule at Purdue on Friday.
