ACC basketball: No. 12 Clemson 87, Boston College 77

Associated Press
BOSTON ó Trevor Booker had 21 points and 13 rebounds, and Terrence Oglesby scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half to lead No. 12 Clemson to an 87-77 victory over Boston College on Tuesday night.
Oglesby went 6-for-10 from 3-point range, one on a four-point play with 11:54 left to put the Tigers (20-3, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) ahead for good at 61-57. K.C. Rivers added 17 points and Raymond Sykes scored 12 with nine rebounds as Clemson reached 20 wins for the third consecutive season ó a first in school history.
Rakim Sanders scored 23 with eight rebounds for BC (18-8, 6-5), but didn’t score in the last 13:27. Tyrese Rice scored 17 as the Eagles dropped to 1-4 against ranked teams, with No. 6 Duke up next on Sunday.
Clemson won for the fourth time in five games, including a 27-point victory over Duke that the Tigers followed by blowing a 19-point lead and losing to unranked Florida State.
The Tigers trailed 44-37 early in the second half before scoring the next seven points, getting back-to-back steals off the full-court press to take the lead. BC led 57-55 when Booker made a basket and then Oglesby hit a 3-pointer and drew a foul, sinking the free throw to give the Tigers a four-point lead.
After Rice’s layup, Oglesby hit another 3 and Booker rebounded Rice’s miss and got a dunk at the other end to make it a seven-point lead.
