Scott, Miami edge Boston College 60-59
MIAMI FL 60, BOSTON COLLEGE 59

BOSTON (AP) -- Durand Scott hit four free throws in the closing
30 seconds and drew an offensive foul to help Miami extend its
best conference start ever by beating pesky Boston College 60-59
on Wednesday night.



Scott finished with 15 points, Kenny Kadji had 14 and Trey
McKinney Jones 11 for the Hurricanes (13-3, 4-0 Atlantic Coast
Conference). It's Miami's best conference start since it went
5-0 to open its Big East season 5-0 in 1997-98.



Olivier Hanlan, who led Boston College (9-8, 1-3) with 17
points, was fouled shooting a 3-pointer with a half-second left.
The first two free throws rolled in but Hanlan front-rimmed the
last one. The ball was tipped in the lane and the horn sounded.



Lonnie Jackson added 16 points for the Eagles and Ryan Anderson
had 11.



Scott's two free throws had given the Hurricanes a 58-57 edge
with 25 seconds to play. After the Eagles called timeout to set
up a play, Scott drew an offensive foul near midcourt from Joe
Rahon, appearing to take an elbow up high.



With Boston College clinging to a one-point lead, the teams
traded misses before Scott stole Hanlan's pass in front of the
Eagles' bench and drove to the basket for a miss, but Kadji had
the put-back to push Miami ahead 56-55 with 1:36 to play.



After a timeout, Hanlan was fouled and hit both ends of a
1-and-1, moving the Eagles back in front with 67 seconds left.



Miami's Rion Brown then missed a jumper from the left wing, but
Hanlan missed the front end of a 1-and-1 before Scott was fouled
and nailed his two from the line.



BC trailed 36-34 early in the second half before Patrick
Heckmann nailed a 3 from the right corner for his only basket of
the game. Hanlan had a three-point play on the next possession
and Anderson followed with two free throws, pushing BC ahead
42-36 with just over 12 minutes to play.



Miami, coming off solid wins at Georgia Tech, at North Carolina
and Maryland, respectively, then stayed close thanks to some
decent long-range shooting, nailing three shots from beyond the
arc over the ensuing 6 minutes.



The Hurricanes cut it to 51-50 on McKinney Jones' free throw
with 3:34 to play, the first of three times they closed it to
one point.



The Eagles came out cold from the field in the opening 5 minutes
of the second half, missing six of their first seven shots, but
Miami didn't fully capitalize.



The Hurricanes did turn a two-point halftime deficit into a
36-31 lead by scoring 10 of the initial 13 points to start the
half, but Jackson nailed a 3 from the right corner, closing it
to two points with 14:18 to play.



Gamble had six points during the Hurricanes' spree to start the
second half.



The Eagles took a 28-26 lead into intermission after Anderson's
layup with 32 seconds left in the half.



BC seemed to dictate the pace for much of the opening half,
running the shot clock down into single digits on most
possessions.



Neither team held more than a two-possession lead in the slowly
paced half that featured relatively few fastbreak chances. Both
schools had zero fast-break points in the opening 20 minutes.



Rahon rolled his right ankle early in the game, went to the
locker room and returned about 3 minutes later.



Miami center Reggie Johnson missed his eighth straight with a
broken left thumb
