WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) – Boston College wrapped up the first 0-19 season in ACC men’s basketball by losing to Florida State 88-66 in the first round of the conference tournament Tuesday, as Devon Bookert led the Seminoles with 15 points.
This was not a rout from start to finish and actually was relatively close at halftime, with FSU ahead 39-30. But the 11th-seeded Seminoles (19-12) scored the first six points of the second half and never really were threatened again.
The 14th-seeded Eagles (7-25) got 21 points from Eli Carter.
Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon added 13 points apiece for a balanced FSU team, which faces Virginia Tech on Wednesday.
In the only other ACC game Tuesday, Maverick Rowan made a career-high six 3s and finished with 24 points to lead N.C. State past Wake Forest 75-72. The Wolfpack play 19th-ranked Duke on Wednesday.
