STATE'S BAD DAY GETS WORSE

BOSTON COLLEGE 79, N.C. STATE 68 - N.C. State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow died Saturday morning of cancer, and few hours later, the N.C. State men's team observed a moment of silence in memory of the Hall of Fame coach who won 737 NCAA games and an Olympic gold medal in 1988.

Tyrese Rice scored 25 points and Joe Trapani had 12 points and 10 rebounds as Boston College (15-6, 3-3 ACC) opened a 19-point lead early in the second half.

The Wolfpack (10-7, 1-4) scored 16 straight points -- six apiece from Tracy Smith and Ben McCauley -- but couldn't take the lead.
Smith had 17 points and McCauley added 15 for N.C. State, which was coming off a 73-56 loss to No. 2 Duke and plays fifth-ranked North Carolina next Sunday.

B.C. outrebounded N.C. State 46-25, getting eight boards from Corey Raji. The Eagles, who had lost five straight league games at home since beating the Wolfpack last Valentine's Day, have won two in a row after losing four straight -- three of them in the ACC and the other to Harvard.
