BOSTON (AP) - Eric Fanning had 23 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals to help Boston University beat Loyola (Md.) 78-63 on Saturday.

Fanning scored 27 in the first game of the series this season - a 77-69 BU loss. Last season, he set a career-high with 37 points against Loyola.

Justin Alston added 17 points and Kyle Foreman scored 10 for Boston (15-11, 10-4 Patriot League). Fanning was 11 of 12 from the free-throw line and BU went 19 for 22 in its third-straight win.

BU used a strong final eight minutes of the first half to turn a 19-18 deficit into a 36-27 lead at the break. The Terriers scored the first five points of the second half, capped by Tyler Scanlon’s 3-pointer, for a 14-point lead.

Loyola pulled to 56-50 with 6:40 to go but BU scored the next eight, with four points from Alston, and the Terriers led by double-figures the rest of the way.

Jarred Jones had 19 points and nine rebounds for Loyola (13-12, 7-7).
