Reggie Jackson scored 18 points and dished out seven assists to lead Boston College to a 75-69 win over Clemson Tuesday night.
Trevor Booker led the Tigers (15-6, 3-4), who played without starting point guard Demontez Stitt, with 19 points and eight rebounds.
The loss was Clemson's third in a row in conference play.
Corey Raji had 14 points and Rakim Sanders added 11 for Boston College (12-9, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), which shot 56 percent from the field.
Raji's jumper from the left wing gave the Eagles a 58-47 edge with just under eight minutes to play, but the Tigers stayed close and finally made a late run, closing it to 66-60 on Tanner Smith's free throw with 2:18 left.
Cortney Dunn had a put-back for BC, pushing the lead back to eight with just under 2 minutes left, but the Tigers closed it to 68-64 on Booker's short bank shot with 44.7 seconds left.
Jackson hit 6-of-6 free throw attempts in the closing 33.9 seconds to seal the win.
Clemson returns to action Sunday afternoon against Maryland at Littlejohn Coliseum.
Tip-off is set for 5:30 PM.
