    BOSTON (AP) -- Brooke Queenan scored 20 points and Kathrin Ress added 17 to lead Boston College (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today; No. 23 AP) to a record-setting, 101-49 win over Niagara on Wednesday night.

    The Eagles (10-2), who moved into rankings for the first time this season on Monday, finished with their largest first-half point total and biggest margin of victory.

    Boston College shot 25-for-32 (78.1 percent) in the first half and led 55-21 at the break in its highest scoring first half. BC's previous highest margin of victory was 49 points, against Georgetown on Jan. 5, 2005.

    In addition, the Eagles shot 72 percent for the game, eclipsing their previous best of 67 percent against Rutgers on Jan. 9, 1997.

    Laura Lokitis added 14 points, Lisa Macchia 13 and Aja Parham 11 for the Eagles.

    BC jumped to a 14-0 lead 6 minutes into the game. Queenan scored six points during the run.

    Jessi Tomasin, Toni Smalley and Danie Mosca each had 11 points for the Purple Eagles (1-8).

    BC pushed its lead to 20 points on Sarah Marshall's basket just over 10 minutes into the first half and went on to score 100 points for the first time since beating Marist 104-60 on November 20, 1997.
