Boston College Vs. N.C. State Halftime Score: Eagles Down 37-24

Boston College recovered from a horrible start to bring itself back into the game, but the Eagles still trail the N.C. State Wolfpack by thirteen, 37-24, at halftime in the opening round of the 2012 ACC Tournament at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.

The Eagles were held scoreless until the 12:34 mark of the opening half when Matt Humphrey (four points) made a layup. During the Eagles' scoreless stretch, the Wolfpack scored 14 unanswered to open the game. BC was able to crawl back into the game at the end of the half and had the ball with a chance to cut their deficit to six or five points, but a steal and a foul resulted in a Wolfpack three-point play. Another Eagles giveaway led to an N.C. State three at the buzzer.

Ryan Anderson led the Eagles with seven points and collected four boards while Patrick Heckmann, playing in his third game back from a bout with mono, had four points and seven rebounds in the half. BC shot 37.5 percent in the period.

Scott Wood led N.C. State with 14 points and Richard Howell added eight points.
