Hanlan scores record 41, BC routs Ga Tech 84-64

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) -

Olivier Hanlan set an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament record for freshmen with 41 points and Boston College beat Georgia Tech 84-64 on Thursday in the first round.

The ACC's rookie of the year had the highest-scoring game in the tournament by any player regardless of class since 1970 and broke the old mark of 40 set two years ago by North Carolina's Harrison Barnes.

He was 14 of 18, made his final 12 shots and was a one-man show in bringing the eighth-seeded Eagles (16-16) back from an early 15-0 deficit and into a Friday quarterfinal against No. 9 Miami, the tournament's top seed.

Marcus Georges-Hunt had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead the ninth-seeded Yellow Jackets (16-15), who have lost five of seven and now are likely left to hope for an invitation to the NIT.
