Alex Len had 16 points and 13 rebounds in leading Maryland to a 64-59 victory over Boston College [1] on Tuesday night in College Park, Md.

Ryan Anderson [2] scored a game-high 19 points to go along with seven rebounds and three steals for BC (9-9, 1-4 ACC). Olivier Hanlan added 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The game was tight until Maryland (15-4, 3-3) used a 12-1 run midway through the second half to take an eight-point lead. BC responded with five straight points on an Anderson layup and Patrick Heckmann 3-pointer. However, that was as close as the Eagles would get. A Heckmann trey with 4.7 seconds remaining made it a 3-point game, but Nick Faust (11 points, seven rebounds) hit two free throws with 4.0 seconds left to clinch it for the Terrapins [3].

The Eagles, whose four ACC losses are by a combined 14 points, next play at Virginia on Saturday.
