ACC Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: Clemson Rolls Over Boston College, Advances To Semis

Clemson routed Boston College, 70-47, in the quarterfinals of the 2011 ACC Tournament. The game was a matchup between two NCAA Tournament bubble teams, so it's a big win for Clemson and a particularly damaging loss for Boston College. 

The game was never all that close. Clemson jumped ahead 11-0, and while the Eagles rallied to cut the lead to eight points at halftime, the Tigers quickly took a double-digit lead again and led by as many as 23 points in the second half. Demontez Stitt led Clemson with 20 points, and the Tigers held all-ACC first-team performer Reggie Jackson to 11points in the game.

Clemson now moves to 21-10 and will face No. 1 seed North Carolina in the semifinals. Boston College falls to 20-12 and will have one good sweat come Selection Sunday.
