Hanlan scores 26, leads BC past Maryland 69-58
By JIMMY GOLEN
BOSTON (AP) Freshman Olivier Hanlan scored a career-high 26 points and Eddie Odio had a career-high 11 rebounds on Tuesday night to lead Boston College to a 69-58 victory over Maryland.
The Terrapins (18-8, 6-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) had won three of their last four games, including a victory over then-No. 2 Duke on Saturday. Logan Aronhalt scored 26 points, making seven 3-pointers - both season highs - but no other Maryland player scored more than nine.
Boston College (12-14, 4-9) had lost three of four games, including a one-point loss to Duke. But the Eagles held Maryland without a basket for a span of 7:15 early in the second half and then scored 12 straight points to turn a one-point deficit into a 61-50 lead with 1:46 to play.
The Eagles made 16 straight free throws down the stretch to protect their lead.
Maryland missed 22 of 26 shots before hitting three in a row, including a pair of 3-pointers by Aronhalt, to cut an 11-point deficit to 65-58 in the final minute. The Terrapins couldn't get any closer by fouling because the Eagles made all of their free throws, making 21 of 22 in the game.
Maryland's victory over Duke - something BC couldn't quite accomplish - had the Terrapins receiving votes in The Associated Press Top 25. But they were unable to follow up against a team that hadn't been able to do more than put a scare into some of the ACC's top teams.
The Eagles lost to Miami and Duke by one point, and absorbed a 64-59 loss at Maryland on Jan. 22. BC has lost six ACC games by 5 points or fewer.
BC took an early lead but it was 24-24 when Maryland hit three consecutive 3-pointers, two of them from Aronhalt. But the Terrapins scored just five points in first 10 minutes of second half and then went five minutes without a point.
