CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (AP) - Rakim Sanders hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points to lead Boston College to its fourth straight win, 80-61 over Bryant University Wednesday night.
Corey Raji had 15 points and Joe Trapani 11 for BC (7-2). Tyrese Rice and Reggie Jackson had 10 apiece.
The loss spoiled the return of Bryant coach Tim O'Shea. He played for the Eagles from 1980-84 and worked under current coach Al Skinner for 13 seasons, including four at BC from 1997-2001.
The Eagles took control with a 13-0 run midway into the opening half and led 36-20 at halftime. They turned it into a rout by scoring the first 17 points of the second half. The Eagles held Bryant scoreless for more than five minutes.
