The ACC roundup …
BOSTON ó Reggie Jackson picked big moment for a milestone basket. He needed to be even more clutch at the free-throw line.
Jackson hit a key 3-pointer late to become the 39th player in Boston College history with 1,000 points and sealed it by making all four of his free throws in the closing seconds, lifting the Eagles to a 70-67 win over Virginia on Wednesday night.
Jackson, the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the week the past two weeks, finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and seven assists despite spraining his ankle late in a loss at Miami on Saturday.
“I didn’t even know it,” said Jackson, a 6-foot-3 junior, of reaching 1,000 points. “I knew I was close.î
Joe Trapani led the Eagles (14-5, 4-1) with 18 points and six rebounds. Biko Paris scored 12 and Corey Raji had 10.
Florida State 55, Miami 53.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. ó Florida State missed its first 10 shots but rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit, scoring 11 consecutive points down the stretch and beating the Miami Hurricanes 55-53.
Durand Scott missed driving shots on back-to-back possessions in the final 12 seconds for Miami.
Florida State (14-5 overall, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is off to its best start in the league since 1993. That includes a win over then-No. 1 Duke on Jan. 12.
Miami (12-6, 1-3) lost for the first time in nine home games this season.
The game was nearly 10 minutes old before the Seminoles sank a basket, but they trailed only 11-7 because of Miami’s sputtering.
Deividas Dulkys’ four-point play started the 11-0 run and cut the margin to 48-47. Derwin Kitchen’s driving layup gave the Seminoles their first lead, 49-48, and they led the rest of the way.
