Dayton sinks Boston College basketball

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Coming into Friday’s game at the Charleston Classic, Dayton and Boston College seemed to be evenly matched — both teams coming off 10-point losses the previous day.

Unfortunately for Boston College, the presence of raucous Dayton fans made the neutral site of TD Arena feel like a Flyers home game. That didn’t help the Eagles’ cause, although it didn’t hurt as badly as the Flyers’ hot shooting. Dayton (2-1) made 78 percent of its shots (18 for 23) in the second half for an 87-71 victory.
