Jackets hold off Boston College

BOSTON (AP) - Trae Golden scored eight of his 24 points in the closing 2:16 and Georgia Tech held on after nearly blowing a big second-half lead to beat Boston College 68-60 Tuesday night.

Kammeon Holsey added 13 points and Chris Bolden 11 for the Yellow Jackets (11-8, 2-4 ACC). Georgia Tech won for just the second time in six games.

Olivier Hanlan had 19 points and Lonnie Jackson 14 for Boston College (5-14, 1-5 ACC). The Eagles lost for the 10th time in 12 games.

Boston College, which trailed by 19 points in the first half, closed it to 57-56 on Patrick Heckmann's dunk with 4:45 to play. The Eagles had two chances to take their first lead of the game before Golden nailed a running bank shot and followed Joe Rahon's miss from beyond the arc by hitting a 3 from the top, making it 62-56 with 1:26 to play.
