BOSTON (AP) - Austin Morgan was 6 of 9 on 3-pointers and scored 25 points to carry Yale to a 75-67 upset win over Boston College on Thursday night.

It was the third straight season that Boston College, from the Atlantic Coast Conference, was stunned at home by an Ivy League school. Harvard defeated the Eagles the other two times.

Porter Braswell had 16 and Reggie Willhite 13 for Yale (1-2). The Bulldogs were 12 of 21 on 3-pointers, hitting 10 of their first 15.

Reggie Jackson led Boston College (1-1) with a career-high 30 points and Corey Raji scored 12. The Eagles were just 3 of 19 from beyond the arc.

The Bulldogs, who led by five at the half, hit four 3-pointers in the opening 4:48 of the second half, pulling to a 48-32 edge on Morgan's jumper from the corner with 14 1/2 minutes to play.

First-year Eagles coach Steve Donahue was 9-11 with Cornell against Yale.
