Thornton's 19 points help Eagles end losing streak to Irish

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) When Boston College needed to hit a big shot down the stretch Saturday at Notre Dame, it turned to freshman guard Jay Heath and he delivered big time.

"The bench was telling me `shoot it,'" Heath said after his fourth 3-pointer of the game from the wing over Notre Dame grad defender Rex Pflueger with 36 seconds remaining provided the Eagles the breathing room they needed in their 73-72 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over the Fighting Irish. "He (Pflueger) was right there. I just put it up and it went in."

Heath finished with 16 points, while fellow guard Derryck Thornton had 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting and Jared Hamilton added 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting as Boston College (5-5, 2-0 ACC) ended a four-game losing streak. The victory also ended a 13-game winless skid against the Irish (6-3, 0-2) since Feb. 8, 2005 when both were members of the Big East Conference.
