BOSTON (AP) Jamir Watkins scored 10 points, Cam Corhen made a steal just before the final buzzer and Florida State held off Boston College 63-62 on Tuesday night.

Florida State opened the game on a 16-2 run and led by 11 points early in the second half before BC rallied. The Eagles pulled into ties at 52 and 54 but never took the lead.

Jalen Warley gave the Seminoles a 63-60 lead with 1:24 left. But Warley missed a 3-pointer from the corner and BC raced the other way for a layup by Devin McGlockton, off a nice assist by Jaeden Zackery, to get within 63-62 with 16 seconds left.

FSU forward Darin Green Jr. missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 10.1 seconds left. BC got it to Zackery in the corner, but Corhen poked it away from behind to deny a shot before the buzzer.

Florida State (13-9, 7-4 ACC) finished with 13 steals. Green and Corhen each had eight points.

Quinten Post led Boston College (13-9, 4-7) with 21 points and 12 rebounds. Mason Madsen added 12 points, Zackery scored 11 and McGlockton had 10. Post went over 1,000 career points.

Post and McGlockton combined to score 18 of Boston College's 31 first-half points. The Eagles trailed by six points at the break.

Florida State returns home to host Virginia on Saturday. BC travels to play No. 9 Duke on Saturday.
