BOSTON (AP) Olivier Hanlan and Lonnie Jackson each hit 3-pointers in overtime as Boston College overcame miserable shooting from beyond the arc to beat New Hampshire 61-59 on Sunday.

Ryan Anderson led the Eagles (5-5) with 22 points and a career-best 19 rebounds. The Eagles missed their initial 19 shots from 3-point range and were 2 for 22 in the game.

Hanlan had 10 points and Jackson scored eight.

Ferg Myrick led New Hampshire (4-6) with 21 points and eight boards.

Patrick Konan missed a drive in the closing seconds and front-rimmed a 3 as the horn sounded.

The Wildcats had scored the first two baskets of the overtime, pulling ahead 56-52 on Chris Pelcher's fastbreak layup.
