BOSTON -- 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.
