CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (WDBJ7/AP)-- The Cavaliers fell to the Eagles, 60-53 Tuesday night in Chestnut Hill.

The #18 UVA men's basketball team moves to 11-3 on the year.

Jared Hamilton hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 37 seconds left and added a pair of free throws to clinch it as Boston College took the win.

It was the first Atlantic Coast Conference loss of the season for the defending national champions. Jay Heath scored 17 for the Eagles, who had not beaten Virginia since 2013. It was BC's first win over a ranked team since a victory over No. 11 Florida State last January.

Braxton Key scored 16 points with eight rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have lost two of their last four games.
