Dell Curry sank an 18-foot jumper with four seconds left as No. 17 Virginia Tech withstood two last-minute three-pointers to defeat visiting West Virginia, 65-63, yesterday.

West Virginia tied at 63 with 14 seconds to play when guard J.J. Crawl hit his second three-point shot of the final minute. Al Young raced the ball to the other end and found Curry open on the left side.

Curry scored 18 points, including four three-point goals, and Perry Young had 17 for the Hokies (7-1).

West Virginia's Lester Rowe had 14 of his 18 points in the second half.
