Sophomore guard Ky Bowman scored 30 points Saturday as Boston College upset previously undefeated and No. 1-ranked Duke 89-84.
In a tour de force performance, the former high school football and basketball standout from Havelock, North Carolina added 10 rebounds and nine assists in an emotional victory at BC, where fans stormed the court in celebration.
Junior Jerome Robinson (24 points) and Jordan Chapman (22) supported Bowman with stunningly-accurate shooting from long distance.
Robinson and Chapman both hit five 3-point shots for the Eagles, who nailed 15 from long distance. Bowman added three.
Guard Gary Trent, Jr., scored 25 points for the Blue Devils, who fell to 11-1 and to 0-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Boston College (7-3, 1-0) had lost previously to Texas Tech, Providence and Nebraska.
How good was Bowman as a high school football player? Well, according to the Havelock News, he passed on an offer to play for the home-state North Carolina Tar Heels.
