HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) -- Ousmane Drame had 10 points, 14 rebounds and a career-high six blocks to lead Quinnipiac to a 59-53 win over Boston University on Saturday.

James Johnson had 16 points and Zaid Hearst added 10 for the Bobcats (8-5), who have won six of their past seven games.

Quinnipiac trailed 32-19 at halftime but steadily chipped away at the deficit in the second half. The Bobcats took the lead for good when James Johnson hit two free throws with 5:59 remaining for a 43-42 lead.
