It took a little bit for Florida State to get going, but the Seminoles pulled away from Boston College for a 88-66 win. The win ends Boston College's season, and guarantees that the Eagles will finish the year without an ACC win.
Senior Devon Bookert led the Seminoles with 15 points. Freshmen Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon added 13 points each. Benji Bell was also in double digits with 10 point. Boris Bojanovsky and Jarquez Smith both finished with 9 points.
The Seminoles shot 58.6 percent from the field and 56.3 percent from the three point line, but just 52.4 percent from the free throw line. The Florida State defense held the Eagles to just 44.7 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from the three point line.
Florida State out rebounded Boston College 32-28 and pulled down 9 offensive rebounds.
Florida State advances to take on 6 seed Virginia Tech after the win. The game is slated to start at 9 PM. The Hokies defeated the Seminoles 83-73 during their regular season meeting in Blacksburg.
