The Eagles win their game in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.


Boston College grabbed a victory for the ACC, as the Eagles dropped Penn State, 73-61, on Wednesday night. The win is just the third in seven games for the Eagles.

Leading the way for Boston College on Wednesday was Olivier Hanlan, who finished with 22 points. The key to his success was getting to the free-throw line. Hanlan made 15 of his 19 free throws in the victory.

Getting to the charity stripe was part of why Boston College was able to pick up the road win. The Eagles made more free throws (27) than Penn State attempted (25).

In the defeat, Jermaine Marshall led all scorers with 25 points. His teammate, D.J. Newbill, scored 22 points of his own.
