BOSTON (AP) — Kellen Tynes had 17 points and 10 rebounds, grabbing two offensive boards in the final two minutes to help Maine hold off Boston College Monday night and beat the Eagles 69-64.

Peter Filipovity had 16 points for the Black Bears (2-1),

The Black Bears (2-1), who never trailed in the game, earned their sixth win of all time against the Eagles (2-1), who lead the series, 18-6.

It is UMaine’s first victory over a Power Five school since beating Penn State of the Big Ten 74-64 on December 21, 2010.

Maine missed their last five shots of the game, but the Black Bears outrebounded BC 5-0 down the stretch, including four offensive rebounds.

Makai Ashton-Langford had 18 points and seven rebounds for the Eagles, who trailed by as many as 12 with just under nine minutes remaining before scoring eight straight points to make it 58-54.

BC cut it to three points with 4:40 left and again with just under two minutes left, when Jaeden Zackery stole the ball and the Eagles had a chance to tie it.

But Ashton-Langford missed the one-on-one front, and the Eagles didn’t get the ball back until trailing by five with 12 seconds remaining.

Zackery hit a half-court jumper to beat the halftime buzzer and cut Maine’s lead to 34-30, the first real thrill from the few fans. But by the end of the game, the crowd was on its feet, hoping the Eagles could pull off a third straight last-minute win in as many games.
