BOSTON -

Aaron Thomas scored 26 points, Okaro White 24 and Florida State pulled out a much-needed 74-70 win over Boston College on Tuesday night.
   
The Seminoles (18-11, 9-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) posted their third straight victory in their chase for an NCAA tournament berth.
   
Olivier Hanlan led Boston College (8-22, 4-13) with 20 points, but had a key turnover and missed a potential tying 3-point shot in the closing seconds.
   
Patrick Heckmann added 13 points and Joe Rahon, who also missed a 3 in the final seconds, had 11 for the Eagles, who have lost 11 of 14.
   
White hit a turnaround in the lane for the 24th and final lead change of the night, pushing the Seminoles ahead 69-68 with 1:31 to play. After Heckmann lost control of a pass for a turnover, Devon Bookert nailed the second of two free throws, making it 70-68 with 24 seconds left.
