BOSTON COLLEGE 64, #15 FLORIDA STATE 60 - Congratulations Seminole Nation, North Carolina pushed you right off the post-bad loss media/fan hot seat...
Boston College's Jordan Daniels scored a career-high 19 points, hitting four three-pointers as the Eagles upset a Florida State team that entered the night atop the ACC standings. BC (8-16, 3-7 ACC) had lost nine of its previous 11 and had not beaten a ranked team in three years.
But the Eagles took the lead midway through the first half by hitting six 3-pointers during a 23-3 run that turned a 13-point deficit into a seven-point lead. Daniels started it all off with a jumper, then hit back-to-back 3-pointers that cut the deficit from seven points to one.
