GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Shane Larkin scored 20 points and No. 9 Miami pulled away to beat Boston College 69-58 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Kenny Kadji added 15 points and Trey McKinney Jones finished with 12 for the top-seeded Hurricanes (25-6).

They withstood a serious scare from eighth-seeded BC (16-17), letting an early 13-point lead disappear before making all the plays down the stretch to avoid becoming the ACC's first No. 1 seed to lose its tournament opener since 1997.

Patrick Heckmann finished with 15 points for the Eagles. His 3-pointer with 3 1/2 minutes left tied it at 55.

Durand Scott put Miami in front to stay with two free throws with 3:01 left, and Larkin took over a few moments later.

Larkin came up with a key steal, then buried a momentum-shifting 3 off an inbounds pass to make it 60-55 with 1:49 left.
