BC keeps Virginia Tech winless in ACC in 61-59 win
BOSTON COLLEGE 61, VIRGINIA TECH 59

BOSTON (AP) -- Dennis Clifford scored 15 points and Matt Humphrey
added 14 to lead Boston College to its second straight
conference win in a 61-59 victory over Virginia Tech on
Saturday.

Ryan Anderson added 12 points for the Eagles (7-10, 2-1 Atlantic
Coast Conference). Boston College beat Clemson, 59-57, for its
first league win on Thursday.

Victor Davila had 14 points and Dorenzo Hudson 13 to pace the
Hokies (11-6, 0-3).

Virginia Tech's leading scorer Erick Green was sidelined with a
sprained left knee. Virginia Tech shot just 36.2 percent (17 of
47).

The Hokies lost their first two conference games by three points
to Wake Forest and four to Florida State.

The Eagles had opened an 11-point lead with 3:40 left before
Robert Brown nailed consecutive 3s to trigger a brief spurt that
closed it to 58-53 with 2:16 left. But Virginia Tech rushed some
quick shots and BC turned the ball over before Gabe Moton's one
free throw gave the Eagles a six-point edge with 26 seconds left

The Hokies did cut it to the final margin on Jarell Eddie's 3
with three-tenths of a second, but the Eagles inbounded the ball
of Clifford's hands and the buzzer sounded as it was in the air
before a Hokies' player could grab it.

Boston College led 44-40 midway into the second half before
scoring 12 of 17 points over a 6:21 stretch to take control. The
first eight points came from the free throw line before Humphrey
banked in a driving one-hander and Anderson nailed a one-handed
flip in the lane after grabbing an offensive rebound, giving the
Eagles a 56-45 advantage with 4:34 left.

The Eagles took a 29-27 lead into the locker room at halftime
thanks to a quick offensive outburst by point guard Jordan
Daniels. He nailed a 3 from the left corner with 32 seconds left
and hit a one-handed runner from the edge of the lane as the
buzzer sounded.

In a second half filled with whistles and shoddy offense, the
Hokies were held without a field goal for the initial 8:01, but
they stayed close by hitting 9 of 10 from the foul line.

The Eagles had opened a six-point edge four times in the opening
nine minutes after halftime before they pushed it to double
digits (52-42) on Anderson's two free throws with 7:33 to play.

Green injured the knee in practice Thursday and was a game-time
decision. He was on the bench wearing a sweat suit.

Green led the Hokies with 21 points in their last game - a 63-59
setback at home against Florida State. Green is averaging 16.1
points per game and has scored in double digits in 18 straight,
the league's longest active streak.

BC guard John Cahill left the game with a right shoulder injury
early in the opening half and was on the bench with it wrapped
the rest of the game.
