In a thrilling opening game of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament, the No. 13 seed Boston College Eagles soared past the No. 12 seed Clemson Tigers with a decisive 85-72 victory on Wednesday.

Boston College, with newfound momentum, clinched their third consecutive victory following a challenging 10-game losing streak in ACC play. 

The team’s resilience and determination were on full display as they overcame formidable odds to secure their spot in the tournament.

Looking ahead, Boston College is set to face the formidable 24th-ranked Louisville in the second round on Thursday. 

Despite facing the Cardinals twice in the regular season, including a narrow 69-67 defeat at home, the Eagles remain undaunted and poised to showcase their competitive spirit once again.

The victory marked a significant milestone for Boston College, with the team avenging their earlier loss to Clemson on Feb. 1. 

In a stark contrast to their previous encounter where they struggled from beyond the arc, shooting 0 for 11 from 3-point range, the Eagles displayed remarkable improvement and determination this time around.
