Florida State beats Boston College to open ACC tournament

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Devon Bookert had 15 points for Florida State, and Boston College wrapped up the first 0-19 season in ACC men’s basketball history as the Seminoles won 88-66 in the first round of the conference tournament Tuesday.

This was not a rout from the start and actually was relatively close at halftime, with FSU ahead 39-30. But the 11th-seeded Seminoles (19-12) scored the first six of the second half and never really were threatened again.

Eli Carter had 21 points for the 14th-seeded Eagles (7-25).

Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon added 13 points each for a balanced FSU team, which faces Virginia Tech today.

In the only other ACC game Tuesday, Maverick Rowan made a career-high six 3-pointers and finished with 24 points to lead North Carolina State past Wake Forest 75-72. The Wolfpack plays 19th-ranked Duke today.
