WEDNESDAY NIGHT HOOPS

BOSTON COLLEGE 80, Bryant (Bulldogs, 7,365 students, Smithfield, RI) 61 – Rakim Sanders hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points to lead Boston College to its fourth straight win. Corey Raji had 15 points and Joe Trapani 11 for BC (7-2). Tyrese Rice and Reggie Jackson had 10 apiece. That’s five guys in double figures and that usually adds up to a win this time of year.

The loss spoiled the return of Bryant coach Tim O'Shea who played for the Eagles from 1980-84 and worked under current coach Al Skinner for 13 seasons.

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.

Cecil Gresham led the Bulldogs (1-7) with 19 points. In its first Divison I season, Bryant is playing a stretch of 12 road games. Their next three games for the Bulldogs are against Rutgers, Providence and Maryland, and they have already lost to UConn by 30 points.
