A brief recap of the Yellow Jackets’ 66-65 defeat to Boston College in the first round of the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C., Tuesday afternoon:
How the game was won: Tech killer Olivier Hanlan did it again, scoring six points in the final two minutes, including the game-winner with 10.6 seconds left on a baseline jumper. The Jackets had led 63-59 with 1:30 to play, but was unable to finish and fell to 0-11 in ACC games decided by five points or fewer or in overtime. Tech guard Corey Heyward's last-second drive fell off the rim to seal the Jackets' fate.
Turning point: Ahead 54-51 with 8:39 to play, the Jackets failed to score on the next four possessions, squandering a chance to build the lead.
Number: 3-for-15. Tech's performance from 3-point range. Forward Quinton Stephens, a 32.7 percent shooter from 3-point range, was 0-for-9 from that distance.
Next: The Jackets' season is complete.
