Hill helps shoot Hokies into semifinals of the Wooden Legacy tournament

Ahmed Hill (Aquinas, class of 2014) continued his hot shooting today with 18 points on 6-11 shooting as Virginia Tech ran past New Mexico 92-72 in the quarterfinal round of the Wooden Legacy tournament.

The Hokies face Texas A&M Friday in the semifinals in a bid to improve to 5-0 on the season. The game, like Friday's, will be broadcast on ESPN.

Through four games, Hill is Virginia Tech's second leading scorer with 14.5 points per game. He has made half of his field goals (20-40) and just under half of his threes (13 of 28) for the season. I featured him other times in the past several weeks at the following links:
