Durand Scott hit four free throws in the closing 30 seconds and drew an offensive foul to help Miami extend its best conference start ever by beating pesky Boston College 60-59 on Wednesday night.

Scott finished with 15 points, Kenny Kadji had 14 and Trey McKinney Jones 11 for the Hurricanes (13-3, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). It's Miami's best conference start since it went 5-0 to open its Big East season 5-0 in 1997-98.

Olivier Hanlan, who led Boston College (9-8, 1-3) with 17 points, was fouled shooting a 3-pointer with a half-second left. The first two free throws rolled in but Hanlan front-rimmed the last one. The ball was tipped in the lane and the horn sounded.

Lonnie Jackson added 16 points for the Eagles and Ryan Anderson had 11.
