Raji’s 24 help Boston College beat Michigan 62-58
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)—Corey Raji scored a season-high 24 points and Boston College held on for a 62-58 victory over Michigan on Wednesday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Raji scored his first nine points—all in the lane—in the first 7 minutes. He had half of his team’s points when the Eagles (5-2) led 34-24 at halftime.
Manny Harris scored 19 for the Wolverines (3-3).
Boston College had an 11-point lead with 3 minutes left but needed to make stops and free throws after Harris’ 3-pointer made it 57-51 with 1:57 left.
Michigan often looked overwhelmed and frustrated, playing nothing like the team that attracted enough respect to be ranked No. 15 last week. The Wolverines were in The Associated Press preseason poll for the first time since the 1996-97 season.
