Deron Washington's banked runner in the final minute Friday night helped Virginia Tech rally from a 13-point deficit with just over eight minutes left and beat Illinois, 54-52, in a first-round game at Columbus, Ohio. "It kind of reflects who we are," Coach Seth Greenberg said. "We don't shoot it the straightest, we make easy things difficult.
