    Eagles cruise to their 10th straight win

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Boston College set school records for margin of victory and fewest points allowed Wednesday night, with Kathrin Ress scoring 15 points in the Eagles' 78-29 victory over Georgetown.

    With the 49-point victory, Boston College (11-1, 2-0 Big East) broke the mark of 47 set in a 90-43 win over Holy Cross in December 2003. The Eagles (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) also broke the school record for fewest points allowed of 34 set against Colgate in December 1996.

    Boston College rolled to its 10th straight win by holding Georgetown (5-7, 0-1) to 20-percent shooting. The Hoyas shot 4-for-24 from the field in the first half and had a 10-minute stretch between field goals when the Eagles went on a 24-3 run.

    Jessalyn Deveny, who entered the game averaging 19.4 points, scored 13 first-half points -- one more than the entire Georgetown team.

    Brooke Queenan added 10 points for the Eagles, two victories away from matching the longest winning streak in school history.

    Varda Tamoulianis led the Hoyas with seven points and nine rebounds.
