BOSTON -- Freshman Olivier Hanlan scored a career-high 26 points and Eddie Odio had a career-high 11 rebounds on Tuesday night to lead Boston College to a 69-58 victory over Maryland.
The Terrapins (18-8, 6-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) had won three of their last four games, including a victory over then-No. 2 Duke on Saturday. Logan Aronhalt scored 26 points, making seven 3-pointers -- both season highs -- but no other Maryland player scored more than nine.Boston College (12-14, 4-9) had lost three of four games, including a one-point loss to Duke. But the Eagles held Maryland without a basket for a span of 7:15 early in the second half and then scored 12 straight points to turn a one-point deficit into a 61-50 lead with 1:46 to play.The Eagles made 16 straight free throws down the stretch to protect their lead.Maryland missed 22 of 26 shots before hitting three in a row, including a pair of 3-pointers by Aronhalt, to cut an 11-point deficit to 65-58 in the final minute. The Terrapins couldn't get any closer by fouling because the Eagles made all of their free throws, making 21 of 22 in the game.Maryland's victory over Duke -- something BC couldn't quite accomplish -- had the Terrapins receiving votes in The Associated Press Top 25. But they were unable to follow up against a team that hadn't been able to do more than put a scare into some of the ACC's top teams.The Eagles lost to Miami and Duke by one point, and absorbed a 64-59 loss at Maryland on Jan. 22. BC has lost six ACC games by 5 points or fewer.BC took an early lead but it was 24-24 when Maryland hit three consecutive 3-pointers, two of them from Aronhalt. But the Terrapins scored just five points in first 10 minutes of second half and then went five minutes without a point.
