CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshmen Olivier Hanlan and Joe Rahon combined for 34 points to lead Boston College to a 50-49 win against Auburn on Wednesday evening at Conte Forum.
Hanlan led the Eagles with 19 points, and added six rebounds and two steals. Rahon recorded 15 points. Sophomore Ryan Anderson led BC on the glass with seven rebounds while sophomores Patrick Heckmann and Lonnie Jackson both had three assists.
The first half was tight the entire 20 minutes as there was no lead larger than four points. Auburn took an early 6-3 lead three minutes into the game but Hanlan ended that quickly with a 3-pointer to knot it up for the first time. After a couple of lead changes, the Tigers led 19-17 with 7:29 on the clock. Hanlan hit a jumper and Rahon sank a three to give BC a 22-19 lead at the 5:50 mark. Auburn closed out the half with five-straight points to take a 26-25 lead into the break.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Unable to fully put away visiting North Florida after jumping out to an early lead, the Florida State men's basketball team's undisputed leader took over in the second half Wednesday night.
In a 75-67 win over the Ospreys (1-4) at the Donald L. Tucker Center, Michael Snaer scored 17 of his 21 points in the second period as the Seminoles (4-1) won their fourth consecutive game. The 'Noles will now prepare to face Minnesota at home Monday as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
FSU led 16-3 in the game's early moments but saw that lead slip to a 32-24 score at halftime. Then midway through the second half, FSU had its biggest lead of the night - a 14-point advantage - but UNF's timely triples from long range kept the game within two possessions throughout much of the contest.
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - James Michael McAdoo scored 18 points to lead five North Carolina players in double figures and the ninth-ranked Tar Heels routed Division II Chaminade 112-70 on Wednesday night in the Maui Invitational.
It was the first time this season that the Tar Heels (5-1) have topped the century mark. They put up 62 points in the first half after being held to 18 points in the first half in Tuesday's loss to Butler.
Tournament host Chaminade (3-3) scored consecutive baskets just three times.
