BLACKSBURG — Miserable doesn't begin to describe Robert Brown's shooting funk. After such an encouraging start this season, Virginia's Tech's starting wing guard has missed 62 of his last 79 attempts from the field. Brown's numbers from beyond the 3-point arc are worse. He's missed 27 of his last 29. But for the second time in as many games, Brown emerged when needed most Saturday, scoring the decisive points as the Hokies edged Wake Forest 66-65 at Cassell Coliseum. The young man may be frustrated, even confused, but clearly he isn't shy.
