ACC Basketball Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: Boston College Downs Wake Forest, 81-67

EDIT: Updated ACC Tournament bracket here.

Boston College led the entire game and had little trouble defeating one of the worst ACC teams in a long time, beating Wake Forest 81-67 Thursday afternoon in the first round of the 2011 ACC Tournament. The Eagles were powered by Biko Paris, Reggie Jackson, and Joe Trapani who combined for 70 points, led by Jackson's 27. 

The win sets up a monster battle for bubble positioning tomorrow between Boston College and Clemson. The two teams have put together tournament-worthy resumes, but don't want to have any doubt come this Sunday. 

In the only meeting between the two teams this year, Clemson grabbed a 77-69 decision at home. The Tigers had a comfortable lead with under ten minutes to play but Boston College put together a late 12-0 run to things interesting, only to fall short in the comeback attempt. .
