Saturday, December 3, 2011
BOSTON (AP) -- Darryl Partin scored 15 of his 27 points in the closing 8 1/2 minutes to help Boston University to a 75-61 victory over its crosstown rival Boston College on Saturday.
D.J. Irving added 17 points and Matt Griffin and Dom Morris each had 11 for the Terriers (4-4), who won their fourth straight for coach Joe Jones -- an assistant under second-year Boston College coach Steve Donahue last season.
Lonnie Jackson led Boston College (2-6) with 11 points. It was the Eagles' third consecutive loss.
The two schools -- longtime hockey rivals -- first met on the basketball court in 1905. Boston College owns a 39-17 all-time edge.
Partin, last week's America East player of the week, came in averaging 23.4 points per game. He had 10 points at the half on just 3-of-10 shooting.
