Miami Hits 11 Threes in 69-58 Win Over Boston College
Feb. 21, 2009
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) – Jack McClinton scored 22 points Saturday and the Miami Hurricanes tied a season high with 11 3-pointers to beat Boston College, 69-58.
The Hurricanes made seven consecutive shots en route to a 20-5 lead, and Boston College was never closer than eight points the rest of the way.
The Eagles’ Tyrese Rice was held scoreless for the first 16 1/2 minutes and finished 3-for-15 against Miami’s zone defense. He totaled 11 points, seven below his average.
The Hurricanes (16-10 overall, 5-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) broke a three-game losing streak and swept the season series with Boston College. The Eagles (19-9, 7-6) were coming off a win over Duke last Sunday.
The Hurricanes have three games remaining on their regular-season slate — including just one more at home. Miami will honor its four seniors — McClinton, Asbury, Lance Hurdle and Jimmy Graham — before their regular-season finale at the BankUnited Center on Sat., March 7 versus NC State.
