Boston College played an exhibition against American International and won 70-66 behind 17 points from Dennis Clifford.  Here's more from BC's official website...

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshmen Dennis Clifford and Patrick Heckmann combined for 33 points to lead Boston College to a 70-66 exhibition win against American International College Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum.

Clifford finished 8-for-9 from the field for his 17 points while Heckman went 8-for-10 from the foul line.

Graduate student John Cahill was a perfect 3-for-3 from beyond the arc. Freshman Ryan Anderson led BC with seven rebounds while Heckmann, junior Matt Humphrey and sophomore Gabe Moton each had three assists.

Heckmann led the Eagles' offense early by scoring eight of the first 12 points and he combined with Clifford for 16 of the first 19 points. AIC's D.J. Gutridge hit a jumper to pull the Yellow Jackets within one before BC rattled off seven-straight points to build a 19-11 lead at the 10:58 mark. Clifford began and ended the scoring run with dunks, prompting AIC to take a timeout.

The Eagles kept the momentum going following the timeout and made it a 13-2 run, increasing the lead to 25-13. BC maintained the 12-point lead at the end of the half and went into the locker room up 33-21 following a pair of Cahill 3-pointers.
