ACC Basketball Roundup

The ACC roundup ….
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) ó Jeff Allen estimated that he was playing at about 75 percent because of an injured groin.
But one might have a hard time convincing the Florida State Seminoles of that.
Allen scored 18 of his season-high 24 points in the second half to lift Virginia Tech past Florida State 71-59 on Saturday.
The Hokies (10-4, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their sixth straight game, broke open a close contest with a 12-0 run to end the first half and took a 29-19 lead at halftime. They never trailed again.
Allen, who also had 11 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season, connected on 7 of 12 from the floor and 10 of 12 from the free-throw line. The scoring outburst marked his best game since a 25-point performance in the Hokies’ double-overtime loss to Maryland last February.
Boston College 86, Georgia Tech 75
BOSTON ó Boston College coach Steve Donahue knew how to get his players to forget what happened earlier this week. He decided that his best player needed to be in control.
Reggie Jackson led Boston College with 25 points on 8 of 9 shooting despite late foul trouble, helping the Eagles beat Georgia Tech 86-75.
Corey Raji had a pair of timely baskets to finish with 22 points and nine rebounds, helping Boston College (12-4, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) recover from a tough home loss three days ago.
It was Raji’s key baskets that helped BC pull out the win after they nearly squandered a double-digit lead.
