Rahon 3-pointer gives BC 53-52 win over Virginia

AP Sports Writer

BOSTON (AP) -- Joe Rahon scored 15 points, hitting the
game-winning 3-pointer as he was fouled with 8.2 seconds left to
give Boston College a 53-52 victory over Virginia on Sunday.

Ryan Anderson added eight points and nine rebounds for BC
(13-16, 5-11 Atlantic Coast Conference), which trailed almost
all of the second half and by as many as 11 points with 10
minutes to play.

Akil Mitchell had 16 points and eight rebounds and Joe Harris
scored 14 for Virginia (20-9, 10-6). It was the second time in
two weeks that BC has beaten a team coming off a victory over

BC trailed by five points, 51-46, with 1:38 left when Eddie Odio
got underneath for a dunk and then blocked Joe Harris' jumper,
setting Olivier Hanlan off on a fast break. Harris was sent to
the line and made one of two free throws, then BC set up for the
winning shot, working the ball around to Rahon.

The BC freshman swished the ball through as he was knocked to
the floor by Evan Nolte. Rahon missed the free throw and
Virginia's Jontel Evans brought the ball the length of the court
before - against tough defense by Patrick Heckmann - stepping
out of bounds on the baseline with 0.4 seconds left.

Mitchell stole the inbounds pass in the Virginia backcourt, took
one dribble and fired up a shot - too late - from beyond the
half-court line that went in.

Mitchell dropped to the floor in disappointment while the BC
players celebrated.

After the traditional singing of the Boston College alma mater,
the players headed over to press row to congratulate longtime
assistant sports information director Dick Kelley, who received
the Most Courageous Award from the U.S. Basketball Writers
Association. Kelley is confined to a wheelchair with Lou
Gehrig's disease.
