BOSTON (AP) — Siyani Chambers matched a career high with 21 points and Wesley Saunders added 18 on Tuesday night to lead Harvard to a 79-63 victory over Boston College — the Crimson's fifth consecutive victory over its crosstown, power-conference rival.

Chambers scored eight points during a 15-1 run early in the second half that turned a six-point lead into a 57-37 advantage with 12 ½ minutes to play.

Ryan Anderson scored 23 with seven rebounds for Boston College (3-5), which was without starting center Dennis Clifford, who sat on the bench with his right foot in a boot.

Andrew Van Nest, who played for Harvard (4-3) as an undergraduate but is now at BC for graduate school, scored four points for the Eagles against his former team.
