BOSTON (AP) Ky Bowman scored 19 points after being held scoreless nearly the entire first half, Jerome Robinson had 17 points and Boston College rebounded from an ugly loss by beating Dartmouth 86-72 on Saturday.

Jordan Chatman scored 15, Nik Popovic added 14 with eight rebounds and Steffon Mitchell had 10 points with 10 boards for Boston College (12-6). The Eagles lost at No. 20 North Carolina by 30 points on Tuesday.

Ian Sistare led Dartmouth (4-10) with 14 points. The Big Green dropped their fourth straight.

Bowman's first points of the game- an off-balance 3-pointer from the top of the key - gave the Eagles a 41-38 edge at halftime.

He then opened the second half with a 3-point play and followed that with a 3 from the top of the key after his dribble and quick stop sent his defender stumbling backward to the floor, capping a personal 9-0 spurt.

After a basket by Dartmouth, the Eagles broke it open by scoring 17 of the next 19 points. Bowman had a pair of 3s - both from the right corner - and a windmill breakaway jam in the spree, giving him 12 points in the opening 4 1/2 minutes of the half.

BIG PICTURE

Dartmouth: Decent 3-point shooting can keep the Big Green in games this season. They hit 15 in a loss against Notre Dame in their only other matchup against an Atlantic Coast Conference team this season, on Dec. 19. They went 9 for 23 in the loss Saturday.

Boston College: Coming off their lopsided loss at North Carolina, the Eagles needed to gain confidence, especially on the boards where they were outrebounded 58-23 by NC. BC owned a 35-26 edge over Dartmouth.

VERBAL BUZZ

There was added excitement around BC's program after highly-touted recruit Jairus Hamilton, a 6-foot-8 forward from Concord, North Carolina, announced on Twitter Thursday that he's verbally committed to the school. His brother Jared, a 6-foot-4 guard, sat on the Eagles' bench wearing a BC sweatshirt. Sources in the program said an announcement is expected soon that he'll transfer from Georgia Southern.

LONGTIME SERIES

BC owns a 22-9 edge in the series, which dates back to 1904-05. The Eagles are 7-0 at home.

UP NEXT

Dartmouth: Hosts Harvard next Saturday in an Ivy League matchup.

Boston College: Returns to league play on Monday, hosting No. 23 Florida State. The Eagles have played three Top-25 teams in their last five games.
