ACC live blog: Miami beats BC by 11

Posted: Updated:

WNCN's Dane Huffman is live blogging all the games from press row at the ACC Tournament. Here is Friday's report on Miami-Boston College.

2:15 p.m.: This one's in the books - Miami wins, 69-58. The Hurricanes play the winner of the State-Virginia game in the first semifinal Saturday at 1 p.m.

2:07 p.m.,Miami in command: The Hurricanes took a while, but they have taken command in this one. Right now it's 62-55 with just 46.7 seconds to play, and the Hurricanes are going to the foul line. This has been an admirable effort by Boston College, which lost to Miami twice in the regular season.

Boston College just hit a three-pointer to make it 63-58 with 36 seconds showing.

1:30 p.m., BC still in it: Well, the team having the most fun in the tournament so far is Boston College. The BC band, right next to press row, is hilarious. One of the guys just sang the Barney song (you know, I love you, you love me ...) to Miami. Don't know what sparked that, but pretty funny.

And the Eagles are playing well. Right now Miami is up 43-42 but the Eagles aren't giving the Hurricanes any open looks. Boston College is the eighth seed in the tournament, and wins by the 8th seed over the first are pretty rare in the ACC Tournament.

1:02 p.m., interesting game: Boston College has really turned this game into a grind, and that's to the Eagles' advantage. Right now it's 25-all at the half, which is a pretty surprising effort by the Eagles.

Boston College comes into this game just 16-16, compared to Miami's 24-6. Boston College lost to Miami just 60-59 in Boston Jan. 16 but fell 72-50 Feb. 5 in Coral Gables. So no one really gave the Eagles much of a chance.

Olivier Hanlan, Thursday's hero for BC, has seven points at the half but the real story is Boston College's defense. Miami is shooting just 30 percent from the floor and struggling to get good looks at the basket.

12:48 p.m., Eagles hanging around: Miami, the top seed in the tournament, got off to a torrid start in this one. The Hurricanes are no fluke as the regular-season champions.

But Boston College, just like it did against Georgia Tech on Thursday, has come roaring back. Right now the game is tied at 23-all,  and the Eagles are playing a tough, physical zone defense that is giving Miami some trouble.

Boston College's Olivier Hanlan, who went berserk against Georgia Tech, has 5 points so far but has taken only two shots.

The winner of this one plays the winner of the N.C. State-Virginia game in the first semifinal on Friday.
