BOSTON (AP) -- Lonnie Jackson hit seven 3-pointers en route to a season-high 26 points to lead Boston College to a 75-55 win over Bryant on Sunday. Ryan Anderson had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and Dennis Clifford added 10 points for Boston College (4-7). It was the Eagles' second consecutive victory. Frankie Dobbs scored 15 points for Bryant (1-10). The Bulldogs lost their ninth straight game. The Eagles went 7 of 12 on 3-point shots in the second half, helping them pull away in the final 15 minutes. Bryant shot just 37.5 percent (21 of 56) in the game, going only 5 of 21 on 3s. BC, which led by two at halftime, scored the initial 10 points of the second half to open a 44-32 advantage. Jackson nailed a pair of 3s 57 seconds apart to cap the run. Bryant narrowed the deficit to 44-35 on Alex Francis' layup, but Jackson nailed a 3 from the right wing, pushing BC comfortably ahead by double digits again. The gap never fell below 10 the rest of the way. Jackson nailed his fourth and fifth 3s of the second half -- coming 1:20 apart -- to give BC a 64-43 lead with 5:07 to play. The Eagles led 34-32 at halftime. In the first half, the Eagles took advantage of the Bulldogs' poor outside shooting, jumping to an 18-4 lead nearly 7 minutes into the game. Bryant missed 14 of its first 18 shots from the floor. The Bulldogs then started making shots and tightened up a porous defense that had allowed BC some easy shots in the opening minutes. Bryant closed the half by scoring 11 of the final 13 points.
