    BOSTON -- Reggie Jackson grabbed the rebound on Malcolm Grant's missed 3-pointer with 3 seconds left, then sank a pair of free throws that proved to be the difference as Boston College beat Miami 61-60 in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener on Sunday.

    Jackson scored 18 with nine rebounds and Corey Raji had 17 points and nine boards for the Eagles (6-2) to send Miami (8-1) to its first loss. BC outrebounded the Hurricanes 46-21, including a 23-4 edge on offensive rebounds.

    Grant scored 18 points for Miami, going 4-for-7 from 3-point range. He scored eight straight points to tie the game 57-all with 2:25 to play as Miami erased a 54-38 lead with a 19-3 run.

    Later, Grant went for the win with a 3-pointer, but Jackson came down with the rebound. He was immediately fouled and hit both free throws for a 61-57 lead.

    Grant hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer for the final margin.
