Post finished with 24 points and seven rebounds while Harris had 22 and five, respectively, for the Eagles (5-2). Jaeden Zackery supplied 10 points, Prince Aligbe posted nine points and five rebounds, and Devin McGlockton grabbed eight rebounds as well.
Boston College shot 51.8 percent from the floor overall, which included making 10-of-20 attempts from 3-point range. The Eagles also finished with just eight turnovers in the contest.
Ezra Manjon led the Commodores (3-4) with 16 points, making it 12 straight games with 15 or more points for the guard, with Jason Rivera-Torres adding 11 in just 11½ minutes of action.
