Jerome Robin­son scored a ca­reer­high 24 points, Ky Bow­man had 14 and host Bos­ton Col­lege beat Tow­son, 80-70, on Tues­day night for its third con­sec­u­tive vic­tory.

Con­nar Tava scored 13 points and Jor­dan Chat­man added 10 points for the Ea­gles (3-1).

Mike Morsell led the Tigers (2-2) with 24 points. Amaud Wil­liam Adala Moto had 18 be­fore foul­ing out in the fi­nal minute.

Nei­ther team held more than a two-pos­ses­sion lead for over 15 min­utes un­til BC went on an 8-0 spree, push­ing the score to 74-65 with 53 sec­onds to play. The Ea­gles led 45-27 at half­time. BC used an 11-3 spurt to pull ahead 33-20 in the first half, with Robin­son’s 3-poin­ter from the top cap­ping the run. Chap­man also had a pair of 3s — one from each side of the court — com­ing 1:32 apart.

“We tried to make some hero plays,” Tow­son coach Pat Sk­erry said. “We did some things that we must get bet­ter at, to be hon­est with you.”

Both teams tight­ened up de­fen­sively in the sec­ond half af­ter an up-and-down, wide-open first half, caus­ing longer pos­ses­sions and a much slower pace.

It also slowed things when BC switched to a zone de­fense late in the half, forc­ing Tow­son to move the ball around the perime­ter.
