Blacksburg, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Lonnie Jackson shot 5-of-8 from beyond the arc and led all scorers with 17 points, as the Boston College Eagles outlasted the Virginia Tech Hokies, 62-59, in Atlantic Coast Conference play from Cassell Coliseum.

Olivier Hanlan chipped in with 14 points, and Ryan Anderson grabbed a game- high 12 rebounds to help the Eagles (5-11, 1-2 ACC) snap a four-game slide and notch their first win over a Division I opponent since Nov. 26.
