Boston College edges Georgia Tech 64-62 for first ACC win
ATLANTA (AP) - Olivier Hanlan scored 25 points, including a go-ahead basket with 1:10 remaining, and Boston College held off Georgia Tech 64-62 on Sunday for its first ACC win.
Patrick Heckmann added 12 points for Boston College (9-9, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference).
The loss left Georgia Tech (9-10, 0-7) winless in the ACC. Of the Yellow Jackets' seven straight conference losses, six have been by no more than seven points.
Marcus Georges-Hunt led Georgia Tech with 20 points, including two free throws with 1:26 remaining to give Georgia Tech its first tie of the second half. Hanlan quickly answered with a basket to give Boston College the lead. Heckmann pushed the lead to four points with two free throws with 27 seconds remaining.
Boston College became the second ACC team to have its only conference win come against Georgia Tech. Wake Forest beat the Yellow Jackets on Jan. 10 and hasn't won another league game.
