BC basketball upsets top-ranked Duke


I think this Boston College team is actually a bit better than most give them credit for being, but it is going to take something special to upset Duke - and it won't be the Eagles.

Freshman guard Gary Trent Jr., as he's done all season, kept Duke in the game with some big time 3-pointers.

Anti-US Valley protests
The Muslims across the Kashmir Valley on Friday held protests to condemn the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The MMU condemned the government's decision to "cage" Farooq and turn the majority of the downtown areas into a "garrison".

Boston College guard Ky Bowman led all scorers with 30 points and added 10 rebounds and nine assists.

The Eagles (7-3), who handed the Blue Devils (11-1) their first loss of the season, made an impressive 15 3-pointers on the day with 11 of them coming in the first half alone.

Rajnath Singh refuses to spell out Naga pact
On September 19, Nagaland Governor PB Acharya had said that the vexed Naga issue would be solved within the next few months. The Centre and the NSCN (I-M) signed a framework agreement in 2015.

The Blue Devils fought back from another double-digit second-half deficit to take a four-point lead in the final four minutes, but Jerome Robinson knocked down back-to-back triples to regain the advantage and stun the top-ranked team in the nation 89-84 at Conte Forum. After a stretch of close games to Texas, Florida, and Indiana, Duke dominated their next two opponents by 18 and then 57 (yes, 57!) points. Bowman scored 30 points in the win. So on Saturday against No. 1 Duke, Boston College relied heavily on its guards and 3-point shooting.

Mike Krzyzewski hates court storming, too, so this has to be extra satisfying for BC fans.
