BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP)—Monet Tellier matched her season high with 24 points and Virginia Tech snapped a four-game losing streak, upsetting No. 19 Florida State 71-52 Sunday.

The Hokies (9-18, 3-13) held the Atlantic Coast Conference’s best offensive team to 32.8-percent shooting (21 of 64). The Seminoles entered leading the ACC with 78.5 points per game, but fell far short of the average for the second consecutive game after scoring a season low in a 61-50 loss to No. 5 Duke Friday.

Florida State (20-7, 10-6) is the only Division I team with five players averaging double figures, but Morgan Toles was the only scorer in double digits with 13 points Sunday.

Uju Ugoka added 21 points and 12 rebounds—nine offensive—off the bench for Virginia Tech, which used an 18-2 run to build a 33-22 halftime edge. The Hokies led by double digits for most of the second half.
