BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Dorian Finney-Smith scored 17 points, including a tip-in with 1.8 seconds left, to lift Virginia Tech past Boston College 66-65 on Sunday night.
After Virginia Tech (14-11, 3-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) called a timeout with 10.1 seconds remaining, Robert Brown launched a 3-pointer at the top of the key with 4 seconds left that bounced off the rim. Finney-Smith, though, tipped it in to give the Hokies a one-point lead.
Boston College (8-17, 3-8) then called a timeout for a final attempt. Lonnie Jackson took a long 3-pointer just inside of the halfcourt line that was off the mark, and Virginia Tech prevailed.
Finney-Smith hit 7 of 10 from the floor and grabbed eight rebounds to pace the Hokies.
Ryan Anderson led Boston College with 17 points, and Jackson finished with 14. The Eagles shot a season-high 55.8 percent (24 of 43).
