CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Reserve Reggie Jackson scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, and Boston College overcame a 17-point deficit with less than 16 minutes left to beat Miami 79-75 Tuesday night.
The Eagles trailed 58-41 before a 22-7 run got them back in the game. Jackson fed Joe Trapani for a layup as the shot-clock buzzer sounded to put the Eagles ahead for the first time in the second half, 70-69 with 2:50 left.
They led the rest of the way. Trapani, a junior, scored a career-high 31 points.
The Eagles (11-8, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) completed a season sweep of Miami. Boston College also won when the teams played Dec. 6 but had since lost three consecutive league games, all by 16 points or more.
The Hurricanes (15-4, 1-4) have lost three in a row after they briefly cracked the Top 25 thanks to their best start in 50 years.
