CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.,- The Boston College Eagles fell for the fifteenth straight game Tuesday night, losing to the Virginia Tech Hokies 71-56 in front of a sparse crowd of 1,018 at Conte Forum.

The loss was marked by struggles from three-point range. The Eagles shot 1-for-15 from three point range in the first half, causing the Eagles to have a woeful first half offensively for the second straight game.

"We all get frustrated," BC coach Jim Christian said. "When we go 1-for-15 from three in the first half at home, I mean come on… those were open shots. You can't go 1-for-15 at home."

Alongside eight first half turnovers and 17 allowed free throws, the Eagles were set back in the first half and entered halftime down 40-27. From there, the Eagles were not able to get back into the game, and the result for BC's fifteenth ACC game was the same as the ones before it—a loss.

"You gotta keep going," Christian said. "We got a lot of young guys out there playing basketball. It shouldn't be very hard to keep them going. We've got guys playing their first year of college basketball and they play. The guys who are playing, they need to see what they are doing out there so they can improve, because there's a lot of areas obviously, each one of them that needs improving."

The Eagles return to action against Georgia Tech Saturday, Feb. 27 at 12:00 PM.
