The ACC roundup …

BOSTON — Jared Dudley had Boston College heading for an easy victory over

No. 16 Virginia Tech on Saturday when he was called for three fouls in four minutes.

That’s when the BC bench picked up the pace.

With three subs on the floor for the last seven minutes of the first half, Boston College extended its lead to as many as 23 points and coasted to an 80-59 victory over Virginia Tech (15-7, 6-3, ACC).

“When he goes out, it’s not like the whole team is leaving. We’ve still got to play ball,” Tyrese Rice said of Dudley, who had 30 points and 11 rebounds.

Rice had 20 points and eight assists while playing all 40 minutes to help the Eagles (16-6, 7-2 ACC) improve to

2-3 against ranked teams and beat one for the first time since shotblocker Sean Williams was kicked off the team Jan. 17. BC, which had been tied with the Hokies for second place in the ACC standings, have beaten them six times in a row.

Georgia Tech 80, No. 25 Clemson 62

ATLANTA — Coach Paul Hewitt never lost faith in Javaris Crittenton. He only wanted Georgia Tech’s big men to offer more support.

“We gave Javaris help by screening and getting the wings open or flashing,” Hewitt said. “That released the pressure instead of leaving him out there on an island by himself.”

Crittenton scored a career-high 26 points and Thaddeus Young added 14 to help Georgia Tech end a four-game losing streak with an 80-62 victory over No. 25 Clemson on Saturday.

Clemson (18-5, 4-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) has dropped three straight and five of six after winning its first three ACC games.

Virginia 81, Miami 70

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Sean Singletary and J.R Reynolds combined for 40 points and surging Virginia moved into a three-way tie for first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference on Saturday night with a

81-70 victory against Miami.

The victory was the sixth straight for the Cavaliers (15-6, 7-2) and earned them a share of the top spot with Boston College and No. 3 North Carolina.

Miami (9-14, 2-7) trailed 41-27 at halftime and never got closer than 11 in the second half.
