CHESTNUT HILL - In one of their more surprising starts of the season, the Boston College Eagles are holding a one-point lead over the No. 15/17 ranked Florida St. Seminoles, 34-33, at halftime of Wednesday night's contest at Conte Forum.
Florida State outworked Boston College in the early stages of the game, taking a 23-12 lead midway through the opening half. Yet the Eagles responded with one of their better stretches of the season by far, closing out the half on a 22-10 run while making eight three-pointers before the break.
Jordan Daniels sparked the Eagles with 12 points on 3-of-4 shooting from long distance as Boston College made 8-of-20 field goals in the half to shoot 40.0 percent. Matt Humphrey added nine points, Ryan Anderson had five points and Lonnie Jackson scored three for BC.
Bernard James and Ian Miller paced the Seminoles with eight points a piece. Michael Snaer, the Seminoles' leading scorer, was held to seven first-half points and Okaro White chipped in with five points. Florida State shot 52.2 percent.
