Chestnut Hill, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Thomas led the way with 26 points and six rebounds to propel the Florida State Seminoles to a 74-70 victory over the Boston College Eagles in an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup at Conte Forum.

For Boston College (8-22, 4-13), Olivier Hanlan made eight of his 16 field goal tries for 20 points and Patrick Heckmann provided a spark off the bench with 13 points. Joe Rahon contributed 11 points as the Eagles suffered their third setback in four games.
