In a much needed victory, the BC women’s basketball team defeated Yale on the road last night. The Eagles dominated the game, allowing Yale to take the lead for only 21 seconds. Despite a few lapses, including allowing Yale to go on a 12-0 run, BC defeated the Bulldogs by a score of 71-64.
Mariella Fasoula has been BC’s key player this season, and last night was no different. She earned her first career double-double, scoring 21 points and picking up 14 rebounds.
Kelly Hughes also had a solid game, scoring 13 points for BC, while Georgia Pineau continues to improve for the Eagles. Pineau, a freshman, scored 10 points in 36 minutes of playing time and made 71% of her attempted field goals.
The Eagles shot a season high 59.6% from the floor and showed improved accuracy from the free throw line, making 75% of their attempted free throws. The Eagles do continue to struggle with turnovers, committing 20 compared to Yale’s 16.
BC returns to Conte Forum on Saturday at 4 PM to face Providence. The team will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots.
