Robinson connected on 11 of 17 from the floor, including two 3-pointers, for the Hokies, who bounced back from Saturday's loss to Miami and have now won four of their past five games.
That field-goal percentage was Virginia Tech's best against an ACC foe this season, which came, interestingly enough, after the Hokies’ spent their two days of preparation working solely on their defense.
They trailed the entire second half, coming as close as 61-55 on a 3-pointer by Sam Hunt with 10:52 remaining, but getting no closer than seven the rest of the way.
He moved past Carolos Dixon into 21 st place in career scoring at Tech.
The Hokies play at rival Virginia on Saturday — and the Cavaliers will have the extra motivation of possibly moving to No.
