Eagles off the schnide after getting swept out of Brooklyn

NCAA Basketball: Barclays Center Classic-Boston College vs Richmond Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

After the Boston College Eagles were swept out of Brooklyn at the Barclays Center Classic, the Eagles left nothing to chance Saturday afternoon, going wire-to-wire to defeat the Dartmouth Big Greeen 88-70 at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

The Eagles’ 88 points in the game are a season high for the team.

Despite getting into foul trouble early, Jerome Robinson put up 27 points, tied for a season high set against Richmond.

The Eagles opened their lead with an early AJ Turner jumper, giving BC a 4-2 lead that the Eagles did not relinquish.

Dartmouth hung around for much of the game until the 9:21 mark of the second half, when leading scorer for the Big Green Evan Boudreaux was ejected for a hard hit on a Connar Tava shooting attempt. From that point the Eagles were able to pull away and take the victory.

The Eagles take on another Ivy League opponent on Wednesday, Dec. 7, crosstown rival Harvard.
