Boston College 76, Maryland 72: Eagles Earn Resume-Boosting Win Over Terps

Reggie Jackson torched the Terps for a career-high 31 points and 8 rebounds as the Eagles picked up a much needed win over the Terrapins 76-72. The win gives the Eagles a regular season sweep of Maryland and breaks a streak of five consecutive games in this series where the road team has come away with the victory.

The Terps took a three point lead to the locker room, but dug themselves into a hole starting the second half shooting 0-8 from the field. BC got some big, big threes from John Cahill (3-4, 9 points) and Biko Paris (2-5, 7 points) on the afternoon.

But the star of the game was Jackson, who seemingly did it all this afternoon -- 31 points, 8 rebounds, 12-16 FG and 5-7 from three -- including two highlight reel layups and some Terp soul-crushing daggers from beyond the arch.

More importantly, the win gives BC a big, big NCAA Tournament resume-boosting win. After Duke (22-2, 9-1 ACC), North Carolina (17-6, 7-2) and Florida State (17-7, 7-3), a quartet of ACC teams will likely vie for 1-2 NCAA Tournament at-large spots. Clemson (17-7, 6-4) Boston College (16-9, 6-5), Maryland (16-9, 5-6) and Virginia Tech (15-7, 5-4) are all very much in the mix for a few of the NCAA Tournament's final at-large spots.

BC's regular season sweep over Maryland likely vaults the Eagles over the Terps in that discussion. The Eagles also have the opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the Hokies with a regular season sweep when they travel to Cassell Coliseum on March 1.

The Eagles have a much-needed week off to prepare for their road trip to Chapel Hill to face the Heels, a team that blitzed them 106-74 in Chestnut Hill 11 days ago.
