Boston College had a valiant comeback attempt fall short Tuesday night, losing its third straight ACC game, 92-85 at Wake Forest. Senior Tyler Roche, starting in place of Joe Trapani, who was back in Chestnut Hill with the stomach flu, scored a career-high 31 points in the loss, which dropped the Eagles' record to .500 at 12-12 (3-7 ACC).
Down by 19 with just over 10 minutes remaining in regulation, the Eagles roared back but could not cut the deficit to less than six points. Nine missed free throws hurt BC’s chances of making the game closer after the Eagles climbed back into the contest. Corey Raji had a double-double for the Eagles with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Reggie Jackson also scored 17, thanks to a late surge.
Roche’s big night helped BC tie its best offensive effort of the season, but the Eagles’ defense was not at a similar level on the night. It was the fourth loss in the last five games for BC, with...

Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers said Tuesday that he no longer wants a long-term deal with Carolina, saying he's changed his stance on whether he wants to continue his career with the Panthers.
“Last year, at the time, that was the option that I wanted most,” Peppers told Charlotte radio station WFNZ. “Now it's not.”
While agent Carl Carey said last week he believes the Panthers aren't interested in retaining Peppers, Carolina's career sacks leader, team officials haven't announced their plans for the impending free agent.
“How can you say you want to be somewhere when you're not really sure if they want you there because they're not even talking to you?” Peppers said.
Peppers, who turned 30 last month, has been one of the premier pass rushers since he entered the league in 2002, compiling 81 sacks in that time, including 10 1/2 sacks or more in five of the last six...
