BOSTON (AP) -- Jordan Daniels scored a career-high 19 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Boston College to a 64-60 victory over No. 15 Florida State on Wednesday night and snap the Atlantic Coast Conference-leading Seminoles' win streak at seven games. BC (8-16, 3-7 ACC) had lost six in a row and nine of its previous 11. It had not beaten a ranked team in three years. But the Eagles took the lead midway through the first half and fell behind only briefly in the second, running their lead to eight points and holding on. Michael Snaer scored 16 for Florida State (16-7, 7-2). But he shot 6-for-18 from the floor and made one of seven 3-point attempts. Matt Humphrey scored 15 points and Ryan Anderson had 14 points and six rebounds for the Eagles. The Eagles led by eight points, 55-47, midway through the second half before Florida State began sending them to the foul line. The Seminoles cut the deficit to three points, 60-57, after BC's Matt Humphrey missed the front end of a one-and-one with 1:43 to play and Okaro White made his free throws at the other end. Bernard James blocked Anderson, and Deividas Dulkys saved the ball from going out of bounds. But with a chance to tie it or cut the deficit to one point, Luke Loucks fired up a 25-footer that clanged off the side of the rim, and BC's Lonnie Jackson grabbed the rebound; he was fouled and hit his free throws to give BC a five-point cushion. Snaer, who bandaged his left pinky early in the second half, hit a 3-pointer with under 10 seconds left, but BC iced it from the free-throw line. BC had eight 3-pointers in the first half for only its second halftime lead in 2012. Florida State, which had attained its highest ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 since 1998, entered the night tied with North Carolina atop the ACC. The Seminoles won the head-to-head matchup. Florida State trailed 5-4 before scoring the next 12 points. The Seminoles led by 13, 23-10 with 8:37 left in the first half, before BC scored eight points in a row, 14 of 16 and 23 of 26 -- including six 3-pointers in a span of 4:17.
