This Afternoon First your Extra Point - Virginia :00 native Alonzo Mourning is back in
Miami.

The seven-time All-Star center
officially signed a contract Tuesday to
rejoin Miami, the team with whom he
spent eight previous seasons.

Mourning first stint with Miami
was twice interrupted as he battled
kidney disease.

This means Miami now has the top
3 draft picks from the 1992 draft on
their roster in Mourning, Shaq and

GRAPHIC=ACC The Virginia Tech Hokies, who
ENG#=1 less than two weeks ago were on top of


the world after beating Duke, are now
hanging on for dear life.

After turning the ball over 18

times in a loss to State over the
weekend - the Hokies got killed on the
offensive glass and then got killed by
a another turnover tonight against
Clemson.

VO-NAT VO-NAT

*CG locator Clemson, SC
FSN It was senior night at Clemson :00 and before the game they gave Sherrod
Ford a standing ovation. He may get
his own statue tomorrow.

The Hokies gave up 20 offensive
rebounds and as a result found
themselves down by nine points at the
half.

But they came out in the second
half and got a huge lift from Deron
Washington. The freshman from New
Orleans stretched his high wire across
Litttlejohn Coliseum and started
throwing down the rock from a variety
of angles.

Still the Hokies were down by one
when Jamon Gordon got in the paint,
drew the defense and found Zabian
Dowdell for the three. Tech leads
62-to-60.

It was 64-to-61 Tech, when
Clemson rushed down the floor and Ola

Babalola threw in this three pointer
from the right wing to tie the game at
64-all.

The Hokies were still very much
in control with the ball and a tie
game, but
*CG final Virginia Tech
64 Gordon's bounce pass in the paint is Clemson stolen by Shawan Robinson and watch him 66 find Ford for a dunk of all things at Hokies Now 7 and 8 In ACC the buzzer. Clemson shocks Tech
