CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Reggie Jackson came off the bench Tuesday to score 18 points, including all 10 of his free throws, in Boston College's 75-69 victory over No. 21 Clemson.

Trevor Brooks led Clemson (15-6, 3-4)) with 19 points and eight rebounds. Jerai Grant scored 12 points for the Tigers.
