GREENSBORO, N.C. — Olivier Hanlan came through with another big moment at the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, keeping Boston College alive for one more game while giving Georgia Tech another painfully familiar finish. Hanlan hit a jumper with 10.9 seconds left to help the Eagles beat the Yellow Jackets 66-65 on Tuesday in the tournament's opening game. Hanlan scored 25 points for the 12th-seeded Eagles (13-18), the last coming when he drove on Robert Sampson then stepped back to bury the go-ahead shot on the right side.
