 NEW YORK (AP) -A.D. Vassallo scored 24 points and Malcolm Delaney added 22 as Virginia Tech beat St. John's 81-67 on Sunday to win the Aeropostale Holiday Festival for the second straight year.
The Hokies (8-4) beat the Red Storm in the final at Madison Square Garden just as they did in 2007.
St. John's (9-2) was trying for a record 15th title in its 43rd appearance in the event.
Virginia Tech used a 10-0 run of offensive rebounds and 3-pointers to take control midway through the second half. Vassallo and Delaney each had a 3-pointer in the run that made it 57-45 with 13:50 to play. One of those 3s and the other two field goals in the spurt came after the Hokies grabbed an offensive rebound.
