Boston College defeats Massachusetts 79-67

Dec 24, 2009 - 2:14 AM BOSTON(AP) -- Joe Trapani finished with 18 points after a rough start and Corey Raji added 18 to lead Boston College to a 79-67 win over Massachusetts in the Commonwealth Classic on Wednesday night.

Rakim Sanders added 15 points and eight assists for BC, which overcame 32 percent shooting in the first half with 53 points after halftime. Trapani, who missed seven of his initial eight shots and scored just two points in the opening half, was 5-for-9 from the floor in the second half.

The Eagles (8-4) won their second straight after embarrassing home losses to Harvard and Rhode Island, both from weaker conferences.

The Minutemen (6-6), coming off a last-second 73-72 win over Memphis on Saturday, were led by Anthony Gurley's 23 points and Sean Carter's 16. Terrell Vinson, who hit a bank shot in the lane with 0.7 seconds left to beat the Tigers, finished with two points.
