 BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Kayel Locke scored 15 points, including six in the final two minutes as the University of North Carolina-Greensboro defeated Virginia Tech 55-52 on Saturday.
   Locke's basket with 1:23 left gave the Spartans a 50-49 lead and they held on down the stretch. Kyle Cain scored a game-high 18 points to lead UNC-Greensboro.
   The Spartans (7-7) rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit to record just their second victory ever over an ACC team.
   Virginia Tech (7-5) had a chance to tie the game with 10.1 seconds left. Devin Wilson made a layup and was fouled, but he missed a free throw that would have tied the game at 53.
   RJ White hit two free throws with 9.3 seconds left to give the Spartans a 55-52 lead. Marshall Wood (Rustburg) missed a 3-pointer with three seconds left that would have tied the game.
   The Hokies got 14 points from Wood.
