Boston College NCAA Lock? BC 20 wins and (8-6) ACC, looks like a lock to me…..

Boston College Holds Off No. 23 Florida State, 72-67

Tyrese Rice hit a key 3-pointer with 20.5 seconds to play and Joe Trapani scored 19 points to lead Boston College to a 72-67 upset of No. 23 Florida State on Tuesday night.

It was the Eagles’ (20-9, 8-6 ACC) third win this season against one of the conference’s top teams. They handed then-No. 1 North Carolina its first loss on Jan. 4 in Chapel Hill and beat No. 7 Duke at home nine days ago.

Rice, who finished with just 11 points, was scoreless in the first half, but hit his 3 as the Eagles were clinging to a one-point lead. Rakim Sanders added 16 points and nine rebounds for Boston College.
