BOSTON (AP) Olivier Hanlan scored 14 points and Boston College overcame a sluggish 30 minutes before pulling away for a 67-50 win over Division II Philadelphia on Sunday.

Alex Dragicevich hit four 3-pointers and finished with 12 points, and Ryan Anderson and Will Magarity each had 10 for the Eagles (4-7), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Anderson added 13 rebounds.

Derek Johnson led Philadelphia University with 15 points, Nick Christian had 12 and Nick Schlitzer 10.

The Eagles led by eight at halftime and had trouble shaking the Rams, who cut it to 43-41 on Johnson's 3-pointer from the top of the key with 11 1/2 minutes to play.

After the teams traded baskets, Anderson scored in the lane before Hanlan and Dragicevich nailed consecutive 3s just 47 seconds apart, pushing BC to its first double-digit lead of the game, 53-42, with 8 1/2 minutes left.
