Hoops: Miami 60, Boston College 59

The University of Miami Men's Basketball Team improved to 4-0 in the ACC with a 60-59 win over Boston College on Wednesday night.

After falling behind in the first half, Miami came back and outscored the Eagles just enough in the second half to win their fourth straight game to start their conference schedule this season.

Durand Scott scored 15 points for the Hurricanes, with four coming via free throws in the final 30 seconds of the game. Shane Larkin grabbed six rebounds, and had five assists in a winning effort for the Canes.

Kenny Kadji scored 14 points for the Hurricanes, who have their best conference record to start the season since going 5-0 in the Big East back in the 97-98 season.

The starting lineup was the same as it's been for each of Miami's first four conference games -- Scott, Kadji, Larkin, Trey McKinnie Jones, and Julian Gamble.

The win sends Miami to 13-3 on the season. They came into the game receiving votes in the national rankings, so this win will likely put them in the Top 25 for the first time this season.

The Hurricanes will return home next Wednesday when they play host to Duke.
