Boston, Mass. -- Darius Gardner supplied 18 points, Tony Wroblicky scored 15, and American University punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament with a 55-36 triumph over Boston University in the title game of the Patriot League Tournament on Wednesday at Agganis Arena.

The second-seeded Eagles stifled the top-seeded Terriers, holding Boston to just 30.8 percent shooting from the field, including a woeful 1-of-17 effort from 3-point range, en route to claiming their first tourney crown since winning back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009.

American (20-12), which advanced to the Patriot League title tilt for the fifth time in program history, shot a scorching 55.9 percent from the floor.

Maurice Watson, Jr. scored 11 points and handed out five assists, but turned the ball over seven times for BU (24-10), which went 15-3 in conference play during its first season in the Patriot League this year.
