Boston College 83, Sacred Heart 73: Eagles Claim Third Straight Win

The Boston College Eagles beat the Sacred Heart Pioneers by a final score of a 83-73. It was the fifth win of the season, and the third consecutive, for the Eagles.

An Evan Kelley layup with eight and a half minutes left in the second half gave the Pioneers a brief lead. The Eagles retook the lead with a Lonnie Jackson three-point jumper right before the six minute mark, a lead they would not relinquish through the rest of the game.

Dennis Clifford led the Eagles with 16 points, six rebounds, one assist and three blocked shots. Matt Humphrey and Lonnie Jackson each hit three of six three-point attempts. Humphrey led the Eagles with 18 points.

That was the third straight win for the Eagles, who beat Bryant University on Sunday and Stony Brook the week before that. They host Harvard on Thursday, Dec. 29.

Boston College Vs. Sacred Heart First Half Score: Eagles Lead 41-35

The Boston College Eagles lead the Sacred Heart Pioneers 41-35 after the first half of play at the Silvio O. Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA.

The Pioneers led 2-0 for the first couple of minutes as the Eagles couldn't get their shots to fall. A Dennis Clifford dunk gave Boston College their first lead at 6-4 at the 17:08 mark. The dunk kick-started a 10-2 run. The Eagles went cold again and allowed Sacred Heart to get back into the contest before the halfway mark of the first half.

A couple of three-point makes for Boston College allowed the Eagles to get some breathing room at the beginning of the second part of the first half. The Eagles held a 24-16 lead at the 8:37 mark. The Pioneers didn't go away but the Eagles made enough shots to keep their cushion down the stretch. A Matt Humphrey layup with 4:22 left to play extended the lead to 33-24. Shane Gibson kept the Pioneers in the game in the first half with clutch shooting from three-point range.

Dennis Clifford did most of his damage in the paint early but finished the first half with 7 points (3-3 shooting), 5 rebounds and 2 blocks. Matt Humphrey made 2 out of 4 three-point attempts for Boston College and led the Eagles in first half scoring with 13 points. Shane Gibson paced the Pioneers with 17 first half points (3-4 from behind the arc).
