    Michael Snaer, Chris Singleton and Ryan Reid each finished with 10 points for the Seminoles (16-5, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). It was just Florida State's third win in its last six games after a seven-game winning streak.

    Rakim Sanders led the Eagles (12-10, 3-5) with 17 points. Joe Trapani had 15 and seven rebounds.

    Kitchen also hit two free throws to seal it with 7.8 seconds left.

    Florida State, which entered the game leading the ACC in field goal defense, held Boston College to 43.6 percent shooting -- the 57th straight opponent below 50 percent.
