BOSTON (AP) - Freshman Joe Rahon scored a season-high 26 points and Boston College snapped a five-game losing streak with a 75-68 win over Clemson despite nearly blowing a 17-point lead in the closing 5½ minutes Saturday.

The Eagles (10-11, 2-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) surpassed their victory total of last season, when they went 9-22.

Lonnie Jackson added 14 points and Ryan Anderson 12 for Boston College.

Devin Booker scored 19 points and became the 36th player in Clemson history to reach the 1,000-point plateau, joining older brother Trevor (2009) as the second brother combo in school history. Randy and Richie Mahaffey did it in the 1960s.

The Tigers (12-9, 4-5) were shooting near 30 percent until they started to hit from long range in the closing 7 minutes, but it came too late.

Milton Jennings had 13 points and Jordan Roper 11 for the Tigers, who had won their last two games.
