AMHERST, Mass. - Tamara Tatham scored a season-high 14 points and Pam Rosanio added 13 points, but it was not enough as No. 20 Boston College pulled away in the second half for a 62-47 win on Saturday.

Rosanio finished the game with 13 points, just three shy of her career-high, on 6-of-12 shooting. Tatham was 4-of-9 from the field and a perfect 6-of-6 at the charity stripe finishing with a UMass-high 14 points - just one shy of her career-high.

Boston College's Brooke Queenan led all scorers with 21 points on the day. Jessalyn Deveny added 14 points to push the Eagles to 3-1 on the season. Both Queenan and Deveny pulled down six boards to lead BC.

UMass (1-3) held tight with the Eagles in an even first half. Both teams hit 13 field goals in the period on 43.3 percent shooting, but BC had a one-point edge 30-29.

The Boston College defense clamped down, however, in the second half as the Eagles outscored UMass 32-18 to pull away for the win. The Minutewomen could only manage 35.3 percent shooting in the second stanza going 6-for-17 from the field, while BC hit 50 percent of its shots.

The Eagles jumped out to a 6-0 run in the first minute of the second half pushing their lead to 36-29. Lay-ups by Brooke Campbell and Rosanio cut the lead back to three before two free throws by Tatham pulled the game back to one 38-37.

Deveny hit a three-pointer to push the BC lead back to four and the Eagle defense held UMass without a field goal for the next seven minutes of the period. In that time frame, Boston College jumped out to a 12-0 run pushing the margin to 12 points, 51-39.

Joyce Massey hit a running jumper at the free throw line with 4:41, but it was not enough as Boston College out-scored UMass 11-to-6 over the final four minutes of the game.



The Minutewomen will return to action on Wednesday, Dec. 1, when UMass heads to Providence. Tip-off is slated for 7:30 p.m.
