BOSTON (AP) -- Steffon Mitchell put his body on the line to help Boston College fend off a second-half surge against North Carolina State.
Mitchell made a couple of key steals late, Derryck Thornton scored 22 points, and the Eagles beat the Wolfpack 71-68 on Sunday night.
"I feel like I'm never surprised with Stef," Thornton said of Mitchell. "Stef plays, probably one of the hardest people I've ever seen play on the court. He gives 110% every time he touches the floor."
