College Basketball Roundup: Salisbury native Rice scores 26 in BC win

Associated Press

BOSTON — The ball swished through the net, the buzzer sounded, and Sean Marshall could forget about the missed free throw that could have iced the game.

The BC senior hit the game-winning, game-ending 3-pointer on Tuesday night, finishing with 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Eagles to an 85-82 victory over Florida State (14-6, 2-4, ACC) and spark a raucous celebration with his depleted team.

“I got down on myself,” said Marshall, who missed the first of two free throws with a chance to give the Eagles a three-point lead with 17.1 seconds left. “When I got the ball, I had it in my head to shoot it. I was trying to make up for the free throw I missed. Hopefully I did that.”

Tyrese Rice had 26 points, scoring 16 in the final 14 minutes for BC (14-5, 6-1), including a double-pump jump shot from the lane that rolled in off the rim to give BC the lead with 31.4 seconds left.
