February 6, 2010 1:42:45 PM PST
Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith scored 21 points apiece to lead No. 10 Duke to a 66-63 victory over Boston College on Saturday. Boston College cut a 10-point halftime lead to 64-63 on Reggie Jackson's long, high-arcing 3-pointer with 16 seconds left. Scheyer was fouled after he received the inbounds pass and made both free throws before BC's Joe Trapani put a long 3-point attempt off the front of the rim at the buzzer.

The Blue Devils (19-4, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have beaten the Eagles three straight times since BC's victory over then-No. 6 Duke last February.

Corey Raji had 15 points and eight rebounds for BC (12-11, 3-6), which has lost seven of its last 10 games.
