  •  

BOSTON (AP) - Ryan Anderson had a pair of layups off Joe Rahon's passes in the closing 2 minutes and finished with 24 points to lift Boston College to a 71-68 win over Providence Saturday afternoon in the 107th meeting between the schools.

Olivier Hanlan added 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Eagles (6-5), who posted their fourth win in five games.

Bryce Cotton led the Friars (8-3) with 33 points and Kadeem Batts scored 14 with seven boards before fouling out with 5:01 to play.

With Boston College clinging to a 64-63 lead, Anderson sneaked inside all alone and Joe Rahon found him for a layup with 1:30 to play. Hanlan added a free throw 20 second later after Cotton missed a 3, giving the Eagles a 67-63 edge.

Cotton hit two free throws to cut it to 67-65, but Rahon drove the lane with the shot clock winding down and fed Anderson again with 23 seconds to play. Hanlan's two free throws sealed it.
