COL BKB: Boston College 82, Harvard 70

Jeremy Lin scored 27 points Wednesday and Harvard pulled off a shocking 82-70 victory over No. 24 Boston College.

The Golden Eagles had won 10 in a row, including an 85-78 upset of then-No. 1 North Carolina last Sunday.

Harvard, however, opened a 43-31 lead early in the second half, repelled a Boston College rally and led by as many as 15 in the closing minutes.

Oliver McNally added 17 points for the Crimson (8-6), who have won four out of five. Boston College (13-3) was led by 16 points by Corey Raji and 14 by Tyrese Rice.

During the second half, Harvard shot 60 percent from the floor and made 17-of-20 foul shots.
