BOSTON COLLEGE 76, VIRGINIA TECH 52

BOSTON (AP) -- Joe Rahon scored 20 points, Ryan Anderson 18 and
Boston College nailed a season high 14 from 3-point range in a
76-52 rout over Virginia Tech Wednesday night.

Patrick Heckmann had 14 points and Olivier Hanlan 11 for the
Eagles (6-14, 2-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Both of Boston
College's league wins have come against the Hokies.

Jarell Eddie led Virginia Tech (8-12, 1-7) with 23 points and 10
rebounds. It was the Hokies' seventh straight loss.

Rahon added six assists and Anderson had eight boards.

It was B.C.'s second largest victory since joining the ACC.

The Eagles led by 13 at halftime after a sizzling shooting
opening 20 minutes, and they didn't cool off to start the
second. Hanlan nailed a pair of 3s as the Eagles scored the
initial eight points, opening a 54-33 lead with 18:23 to play.

Following three free throws by the Hokies after Hanlan was
whistled for a foul and a technical, Heckmann hit two more 3s 17
seconds apart to push B.C.'s advantage to 60-36 with 16:19 left.

Virginia Tech didn't look interested in making a comeback over
the next few minutes that was filled with sloppy passing and
poor shooting.

Alex Dragicevich's 3-pointer with 6 1/2 minutes to play gave the
Eagles a 76-46 lead.

BC shot 68.4 percent in the first half (13 of 19) and hit 7 of
12 from beyond the arc to take a 46-33 lead into intermission.

In the opening 6 minutes of the game, the Eagles connected on
four 3s to pull to 16-7 edge. Heckmann nailed consecutive
triples just 59 seconds apart.

The Hokies switched defenses in the early part of the game,
going from man-to-man to zone, but that fit right into B.C.'s
offense, which usually looks to take a fairly large number of
3-pointers.

BC then opened its first double digit lead of the game, 23-12,
on Dragicevich's 3 from the left corner 9:05 into the half.

The Hokies sliced it to seven on Eddie's conventional
three-point play before the Eagles went on a 12-4 run over the
ensuing 3 minutes, pulling to their largest lead of the half,
38-23, on Jackson's 3-pointer.

The Hokies were without forward C.J. Barksdale, who was out with
a strained groin, and guard Adam Smith, who is expected to miss
two weeks with a strained left calf.

BC next plays at Notre Dame on Saturday. Virginia Tech hosts
Maryland on Saturday.
