3 players suspended, BC beats Dartmouth 89-58
BOSTON (AP)—Tyler Roche moved into the starting lineup after Boston College suspended three players on the day of the opener and scored a career-high 30 points to lead the Eagles to a 89-58 victory over Dartmouth on Friday.
Roche was 10 for 12 from the floor, making 4 of 5 from 3-point range. Reggie Jackson scored 16, Joe Trapani had 11 and Dallas Elmore scored 10 for BC, which was without starting forwards Corey Raji and Rakim Sanders, along with substitute Cortney Dunn.
The three players were suspended for two games for an unspecified violation of team rules. They sat at the end of the Boston College bench, wearing matching T-shirts and warm-up pants, cheering their teammates on.
Jabari Trotter led Dartmouth with 10 points, and Marlon Sanders and David Rufful were the top rebounders with three apiece.
