The ACC roundup …
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ó Mamadi Diane hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 39 seconds remaining to give Virginia a 68-63 victory over Maryland on Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.
With the win, Virginia (10-17, 4-12 ACC) snapped a four-game skid and completed a regular season in which it won just two ACC home games.
The Terrapins (18-12, 7-9), who were led by Greivis Vasquez’s 21 points, will likely need to go on a run in next week’s ACC tournament starting on Thursday to get into the NCAA tournament.
BC 67, Georgia Tech 66
BOSTON ó Rakim Sanders hit an off-balance, 15-foot fallaway jumper from the right baseline with 1.7 seconds left to lift Boston College to a 67-66 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.
Sanders finished with 19 points and Tyrese Rice had 17 for the Eagles (21-10, 9-7 ACC). Boston College, which won for just the third time in seven games, likely solidified an at-large NCAA tournament berth with the win.
The Yellow Jackets (11-18, 2-14) had taken a one-point lead .
Following a pair of BC timeouts, Sanders took the ball at the top of the key, cut to hit left and nailed the tough shot.
