Duke hangs on to beat Boston College

BOSTON (AP) - Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith scored 21 points
apiece to lead No. 10 Duke to a 66-63 victory over Boston College
on Saturday.
      Boston College cut a 10-point halftime lead to 64-63 on Reggie
Jackson's long, high-arcing 3-pointer with 16 seconds left. Scheyer
was fouled after he received the inbounds pass and made both free
throws before BC's Joe Trapani put a long 3-point attempt off the
front of the rim at the buzzer.
      The Blue Devils (19-4, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have
beaten the Eagles three straight times since BC's victory over
then-No. 6 Duke last February.
      Corey Raji had 15 points and eight rebounds for BC (12-11, 3-6),
which has lost seven of its last 10 games.
