The Cowboys used a 9-2 run featuring five points by Smart to close to 60-59, but after the Hokies' Robert Brown and the Cowboys Kamari Murphy traded baskets, Virginia Tech scored seven of the next nine. Eddie scored on a drive, and Brown was credited with a basket when Philip Jurick was called for goaltending. After Nash's driving bank, Marshall Wood was fouled twice and made 3 of 4 free throws.

Markel Brown's 3-pointer from the top of the key for the Cowboys made it 69-66 with 2:22 left.

The Cowboys led 36-32 at a first half in which both teams took turns going on short scoring bursts. The biggest of those was an early 10-0 run by Oklahoma State that gave it a 12-7 lead. The score remained close until 3-pointers by Smart and Phil Forte around an inside basket by Michael Cobbins gave the Cowboys a 34-26 lead. Virginia scored six of the last eight points in the half to get within four at the break.
