- Boston College Advances despite going just 2/14 from 3pt, BC took down Georgia Tech 87-77. Sophomore guard Ky Bowman put up 26, making it three straight games with 20+ pts. If Bowman can stay hot combined with a solid outing from junior G/F Jerome Robinson, don’t be shocked if they give NC State trouble tomorrow.

Bale, Modric and Co. cruise to a 2-1 victory in Paris winning 5-2 aggregate. Vamos Madrid!
