Doug Basse hit four home runs and Virginia Tech beat Howard, 30-0, yesterday.
Basse, a 6-foot, 180-pound left fielder playing his last game in Blacksburg, Va., also doubled and singled in his six at-bats. He homered twice in the first inning to tie an NCAA record established last year by South Florida's Todd Waggoner.
His 19 total bases tied an NCAA Division I record set by John McBroom of the Air Force Academy in 1967. Several college players share the record of four home runs in a game.
Basse set school records for home runs, home runs in an inning, runs scored (7), total bases and runs batted in (12). His six hits tied the school record he set last week against Virginia Military Institute.
Virginia Tech finished the game with 10 home runs and 65 total bases, both school records. Georgetown 10, Villanova 6: Georgetown (21-20 overall and 12-6 in the Big East) won at Villanova, Pa., to earn a trip to the Big East tournament. The Hoyas scored two runs in the eighth and three in the ninth. James Madison 7, George Mason 1: At George Mason, Bobby Ivanicki hit a three-run, inside-the-park homer in the seventh inning as the Dukes won the CAA finale. George Mason ended 27-20-1, 8-10 in the CAA. James Madison, top seed in the league playoff (May 15-18 at East Carolina), is 38-11 and 13-5.
