  Bowman's 37 leads BC to 87-82 win over No. 11 Florida State
By Jimmy Golen, AP Sports Writer

 
BOSTON (AP) Ky Bowman scored 37 points and Jordan Chatman gave Boston College the lead for good by hitting three straight 3-pointers during a 21-4 run to start the second half, and the Eagles held on to beat No. 11 Florida State 87-82 on Sunday.
 

The Seminoles (13-5, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost their third straight game in a week since climbing to the cusp of The Associated Press Top 10.

BC (10-7, 1-4) led by nine with 87 seconds left before a pair of turnovers against the full-court press allowed Florida State to make it a four-point game. But Wynston Tabbs made a 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining to turn back the rally and snap the Eagles' five-game losing streak.

Mfiondu Kabengele had 26 points and nine rebounds and Terance Mann scored 14 points with eight boards for Florida State. It's the second straight year a ranked Seminoles team has lost in Chestnut Hill.

Chatman, who went 0 for 5 from the field in the first half, scored 15 of his 17 points in the second - making all five 3-pointers he attempted after the break.

With a snowstorm that dropped up to 7 inches on the area over Saturday night and into the morning, a sparse crowd at the Conte Forum came to life only in the second half, when Chatman hit three straight from beyond the arc to give the Eagles a 57-50 lead they never relinquished.

Bowman scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds in the first half, when BC opened a 19-13 lead before the Seminoles scored eight straight points in 70 seconds to go in front. After Bowman gave the Eagles a 24-23 edge, Florida State scored 12 in a row and 17 of the next 18 points.

The Seminoles took a 46-36 lead into the break but missed their first five shots of the second, and BC cut the deficit to four points.

BIG PICTURE

Florida State: A last-second defeat to top-ranked Duke was understandable, but the Seminoles may drop out of the Top 25 entirely after losses to Pittsburgh and Boston College. It does get a little easier: They leave the state of Florida only once in the next four weeks after traveling to Virginia, Pitt and BC this month.

Boston College: The Eagles have shown they can beat ranked teams - especially at home. They head to Wake Forest before games against Syracuse, Notre Dame and Syracuse again, so they may have to savor this for a while.

UP NEXT

Florida State: Hosts Clemson on Tuesday.

Boston College: Visits Wake Forest on Saturday.
