COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Rakim Sanders and Corey Raji fueled a second-half comeback that carried resurgent Boston College past Maryland 76-67 on Tuesday night.

Sanders scored 11 of his 16 points after halftime to help the Eagles (16-6, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) win their third straight following a four-game skid. Raji finished with nine points, all in the second half.

Greivis Vasquez scored 18 for Maryland (13-7, 2-4), which has lost four of five. Seeking to bounce back from a 41-point loss to Duke on Saturday, the Terrapins took a 16-point lead in the first half. But the Terrapins went 11-for-37 from the floor in the second half and scored only 27 points.

Boston College won despite getting only 10 points from leading scorer Tyrese Rice, who had two points on 1-for-3 shooting before getting his third foul with 6:26 left in the first half.
