  •  

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) D.J. Irving scored 15 points, including the game-clinching free throws with 7 seconds left, as Boston University secured the Patriot League crown by beating Holy Cross 68-64 on Saturday.

Boston, in its first year in the league, will be a No. 1 seed for the first time since 2004.

Dom Morris added 14 for The Terriers (22-9, 15-3), which shot 52 percent (26 of 50), including 8 of 19 3-pointers. Irving had four makes from beyond the mark and John Papale added three more.

Dave Dudzinski paced Holy Cross (18-12, 12-6) with 20 points.
