Happy Monday, Eagles!
Yesterday afternoon at Conte Forum, the Boston College women's basketball team defeated Virginia Tech 70-63 in their ACC opener. The win was BC's sixth in a row overall, and improved their record to 10-5. While it took them a while to pick up a win over a team from a power conference, two of their last three wins have come against Providence and now VTech. They certainly seem to be trending upward. The Eagles next travel to Notre Dame on Thursday evening.
Boston College's Kelly Hughes seemed to gain confidence just as Virginia Tech was cutting into the Eagles' lead.
"It was a little bit on us; we haven't played in a month, we weren't quite game ready for whatever reason," said Notre Dame forward Bryan Rust. "We were prepared for this team but didn't come out as hard as we should have."
BC's star-studded line contributed three of the Eagles four goals, sending them to a 4-3 victory. Arnold had three points while Gaudreau and Hayes both had two.
A former Boston College star and Phoenix Coytoes draft choice, Ferriero has played 96 games in the National Hockey League with the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers and has scored 23 points (14 goals, nine assists).
Reggie Jackson enjoyed a career night at the expense of the Celtics on Sunday, as the mighty Thunder dealt floundering Boston a walk-in-the-park, 119-96 defeat.
