Ryan Murphy’s Late Jumper Gives Pittsburgh A 74-72 Win Over Boston College

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Ryan Murphy hit a pull-up jumper from the top of the key with 4 seconds remaining to lift Pittsburgh to a 74-72 victory over Boston College.

The Eagles trailed by 10 with less than 5 minutes to go but drew even on a Derryck Thornton lay-up with 12 seconds to go.

The Panthers opted not to call time-out and Murphy delivered to give Pitt back-to-back Atlantic Coast Conference wins for the first time in nearly three years.

Murphy finished with 11 points for the Panthers. Jay Heath paced Boston College with 16 points.
