BOSTON (AP) — James Karnik scored a career-high 26 points, Makai Ashton-Langford added 18 points, and Boston College defeated Virginia Tech 68-63.

T.J. Bickerstaff had seven points, 10 rebounds and four assists for Boston College.

Virginia Tech had a chance to take the lead in the final minute but trailing 64-63 Nahiem Alleyne and Keve Aluma missed 3-pointers.
