Box Score

BOSTON (AP) – Corey Raji had a pair of timely baskets to finish with 22 points and nine rebounds, helping Boston College recover from a tough home loss three days earlier with an 86-75 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Reggie Jackson led Boston College (12-4, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 25 points on 8 of 9 shooting despite late foul trouble. Biko Paris had 11 points and seven assists.

Kammeon Holsey led the Yellow Jackets (7-7, 0-1) with 18 points, Iman Shumpert had 15 and Mfon Udofia 14.

Georgia Tech led 43-41 less than a minute into the second half, but BC scored 16 of the ensuing 20 points, taking a 57-47 advantage on Danny Rubin’s 3 from the top of the key with just over 16 minutes to play.

After the Yellow Jackets called time out to try and stem the Eagles’ momentum, Jackson hit a long 3 – about three steps beyond the arc from the top, giving BC a 60-47 lead with 14:09 left

The Eagles maintained a comfortable lead until the Yellow Jackets slowly climbed back with a 10-2 run over a 4 1/2 minute stretch, closing it to 70-67 on Holsey’s turnaround in the lane.

Raji’s putback pushed the lead up to five points and his turnaround bank shot in the lane gave BC a 76-69 advantage with 1:38 to play.
