N.J. Tech 32, Boston College 89

Jan 6, 2010 - 1:56 AM BOSTON (AP) -- Rakim Sanders scored 21 points, Joe Trapani had 18 and Boston College recovered from a dismal nonconference loss with a 89-32 win over New Jersey Institute of Technology on Tuesday.

It was the fourth victory in five games for the Eagles (10-5), who completed the softer portion of their schedule and resume Atlantic Coast Conference play this week. They travel to Clemson on Saturday and play at No. 5 Duke next Wednesday.

But it was hardly an easy start this season for BC, which lost home games to Harvard, Rhode Island and, recently, Maine - all teams from weaker conferences.

Reggie Jackson added 15 points for BC.

Isaiah Wilkerson and Jheryl Wilson led NJIT (5-10) with 11 points apiece. The Highlanders shot just 23.5 percent.

BC, which shot 60 percent in the opening 20 minutes, led 45-15 at halftime.
