Gerald Henderson scored the go-ahead basket with 34.8 seconds remaining and No. 9 Duke held on for a 66-65 ACC tournament victory over Boston College on Friday night.

Rakim Sanders missed a last-second 3-pointer for Boston College
after missing a jumper with 17.8 seconds left.

Kyle Singler matched his career high with 26 points, Henderson
had 16 and Jon Scheyer had 14 for Duke (26-6), which will face
Maryland in the Atlantic Coast Conference semifinals on Saturday.

The Eagles called a timeout with 5.5 seconds left to set up a
final play, but Sanders' 3-point attempt bounced off the rim.

Tyrese Rice had 17 points and Biko Paris added 15 for Boston
College (22-11).
