Double-double hoarder Bacot leads UNC past Boston College

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Armando Bacot scored 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, R.J. Davis added 18 points and North Carolina beat Boston College 72-64. Davis’ 3-pointer with 12:39 left put North Carolina ahead 52-41. The Eagles challenged with a 14-3 outburst over the next six minutes and reduced their deficit to 56-55 on Jaeden Zackery’s layup with 6:07 to go. But Caleb Love countered with a 3-pointer and a layup less than 60 seconds following a BC miss, and Davis sank a pair of foul shots to blunt an upset bid. Quinten Post scored 17 points for Boston College.
