Providence Sneaks by Boston College
BOSTON (AP) -- Kendrick Moore hit four free throws in the closing 11.2 seconds as Providence overcame a 12-point second-half deficit Tuesday and downed Boston College, 58-54.
The Friars had trailed 43-31 with just under 16 minutes left, but held the Eagles to only three field goals in the final 17 minutes and one in the closing 10:12.
With the score tied at 54-54, Boston College's Kostas Maglos missed a fallaway jumper and Providence's Moore was fouled on a fastbreak with 11.2 seconds to go. He hit both, making it 56-54.
BC's Mickey Curley then fired a wild desperation in-bounds pass that was tipped by John Linehan to Moore, who was fouled with 8.6 seconds left. Moore hit both again and finished with 6 points.
Jamel Thomas led the Friars (8-8 overall, 3-4 Big East) with 17 points. Llewellyn Cole added 15 points and 9 rebounds.
Antonio Granger paced Boston College (10-9, 2-6) with 21 points and 11 rebounds, his second consecutive double-double.
The Eagles had led 50-40 with just under 10 minutes left before the Friars went on a 14-4 run, tying the score on Erron Maxey's layup with 33 seconds left.
Granger scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in Boston College's 64-54 upset of then-No.23 Marquette Saturday.
The Eagles used a 14-5 half-closing run over the final 4:19 to take a 35-31 lead at intermission. They opened the second half by scoring the first eight points, with Granger collecting the first six, and pulled to their first double-digit lead of the game, 43-31, with just under 16 minutes left.
The Friars closed the gap to 46-40 on Justin Farley's short jumper with 11:07 to go, but BC moved back up by 10.
