Boston College wins easy over Virginia Tech 80-60Feb 25, 2010 - 2:27 AM By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer
BOSTON(AP) -- Joe Trapani scored 17 points, all of them in the first half as Boston College opened a double-digit lead and coasted to an 80-60 victory over Virginia Tech on Wednesday night.
It was the second straight loss for Virginia Tech (21-6, 8-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), which lost to then-No. 6 Duke on Sunday. The Hokies dropped from third place in the ACC into at best a three-way tie for third, putting them in jeopardy of falling out of position for a first-round bye in the conference tournament.
BC (14-13, 5-8) has won two in a row for the first time since beginning conference play, a turnaround that coincides with the switch from Biko Paris to Reggie Jackson at starting point guard. Jackson scored five with eight rebounds and a career-high 11 assists.
Malcolm Delaney scored 21, shooting just 5-for-16 for Virginia Tech.
