Jackson Carries Boston College Over NC State

BOSTON (AP) -- Reggie Jackson had 29 points, five rebounds and six assists to lead Boston College to a 75-66 victory over North Carolina State on Tuesday night.

Corey Raji added 14 points, including a key 3-pointer, to go with eight rebounds, and Biko Paris had 12 points for the Eagles (13-4, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Boston College has won 10 of its last 12 games.

The Eagles outscored the Wolfpack 18-6 over the final 3:59.

Tracy Smith led the Wolfpack (11-5, 1-1) with 18 points, while C. J. Leslie had 15. N.C State had its five-game winning streak snapped.

Raji's 3-pointer from the left corner broke a 60-60 tie with 3:05 left and Paris followed with a 3 just 49 seconds later, moving the Eagles in front by six. It was Paris' 37th of the season. The 6-foot-1 senior had 36 in his prior three seasons.

Paris' 3-pointer with 3:59 to play had tied the game at 60-all.

    Jim in Washington, are you going to make reference of the Pack and the Pirates after what Ecu let Maryland do to them in the whatever bowl they played. Go ahead and pull for your Tarholes, you liked that the Pace finished rank in top 25 in both polls in football. It was a road game for the Pack, hard to win on the road, ask Coach K, got to win home games and sneak some road wins in also. Bring back Matt tarhole fans!

    Hmm, surely they were again at a psychological disadvantage. I mean everybody knows that BC is NCSU's Super Bowl, right? Does that apply to basketball wolfies? Who will they hire after firing Sidney this season? Bring back Sendek! HAH!
