Devin McGlockton scored a season-high 30 points to help lead visiting Boston College to a 95-87 victory over Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Ga on Saturday.

Claudell Harris added 26 points for the Eagles (10-4, 1-2 ACC), while Quinten Post chipped in 15.

Baye Ndongo led Georgia Tech (8-6, 1-2) with 18 points, adding 10 rebounds, followed by Kowacie Reeves Jr., who added 17 points. After a four-game winning streak, the Yellow Jackets have now lost three straight, including two in a row in conference play. Kyle Sturdivant had 11 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists for Georgia Tech.

After trailing by 13 at halftime and by as many as 16 in the second half, Boston College rallied to cut the Georgia Tech lead to just three points after a Prince Aligbe triple with 15:37 remaining.

At the 9:01 mark, a McGlockton layup gave the Eagles a 67-66 advantage, their first lead since the 10:57 point of the first half. Seven straight points from Kelley extended the Boston College lead to 74-66 with 7:06 left.

Georgia Tech then used a 12-2 run to take the lead back with 4:10 remaining, followed by back-to-back triples from Harris Jr. and McGlockton, giving Boston College a 82-79 lead.

A technical foul on Georgia Tech coach Damon Stoudamire resulted in a pair of Harris free throws, which he hit along with two others, that gave the Eagles an 86-79 lead with 2:50 left. Georgia Tech wouldn’t get closer than six points again en route to the loss.

In the first half, Boston College made its first five shots from the field before missing 12 of its next 16. Kelly knocked down a triple with 3:50 remaining to match Georgia Tech’s largest lead of the game to that point, 40-33.

The Eagles answered with a 5-0 run punctuated by an and-one opportunity converted by Post to cut the Boston College deficit to two. The Yellow Jackets then finished the first half on an 11-0 run, giving them a 51-38 lead at the break.

Ndongo paced the Yellow Jacket’s first half scoring with 15 points on 7-for-9 shooting from the field, while Boston College was led at the break by Post’s 13 points and McGlockton’s 12.
