Karnik's surge sends Boston College past South Florida 64-49

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (AP) — James Karnik scored six of his 12 points in a 1:23 span late in the game and Boston College pulled away for a 64-49 victory over South Florida on Monday.

After Javon Greene hit two free throws to pull South Florida within 51-44 with 4:43 remaining in the second half, Karnik answered with a rebound basket, a layup and a dunk and the Eagles (5-3) led 57-44 with 2:53 left. T.J. Bickerstaff added a three-point play and a dunk in the final 1:21 to finish off the Bulls (3-3).

Karnik sank 5 of 9 shots with two 3-pointers and seven rebounds. Bickerstaff tallied 10 points and eight boards. DeMarr Langford and reserve Quinten Post scored 11 each. Post scored nine points in the first half to help the Eagles take a 30-24 lead into intermission. Makai Ashton-Langford finished with nine points and seven assists.

Caleb Murphy led the Bulls with 11 points.

Boston College shot 53.8% in the second half to finish at 44.4% overall. The Eagles made 5 of 15 from distance and sank 11 of 16 foul shots. South Florida shot 35.7% overall, made just 4 of 16 from distance and 5 of 11 from the free-throw line.
