The women's basketball team is looking to build off of a mediocre year last season with a skilled incoming class. With Kelly Hughes and Mariella Fasoula having breakout seasons last year and a large incoming class, the Eagles team looks promising.

Here's a look at next year's freshmen:

Taylor Ortlepp (Adelaide, Australia)

Ortlepp plays both point and off-guard. She was the captain of her 2016 U20 Women's Australian Junior Championships team, which won a silver medal. She averaged 13.86 points per game, made 30% of her attempted field goals, 23% of her attempted 3 pointers, and shot 63% from the free throw line.

Emma Guy (Penfield, NY)

Emma Guy was the captain of her high school's varsity basketball team this season, and has played on the varsity team since she was a sophomore. She averaged 17.2 points per game this season, and 14.6 points per game throughout her high school career. She made 75 of the 115 field goals she attempted this season, for a FG% of 65. She consistently has made well over 50% of her attempted shots throughout her basketball career. Guy's rebound totals did drastically drop this season, but she also only played half as many games.

Georgia Pineau (Victoria, Australia)

Pineau represented Victoria at the U20’s Australian Junior Championships, where she averaged 11.75 points per game and 5.62 rebounds per game. When playing for the U18 team, Pineau also averaged around 11 PPG and had at FG% of 67. She cited BC's strong academic reputation as one of the major reasons she decided to commit to the Eagles.

Shannon Ryan (Platsburgh, NY)

The 6'4' Ryan plays center for Tabor Academy in Marion, MA. In her junior season, she averaged 11 points and 12 rebounds per game. Last season she averaged a double double with 18.3 points and 12.3 rebounds. Ryan was originally expected to join the team for the 2015-16 season.

Jasmine Taylor (Springfield, VA)

Taylor is BC's most highly touted recruit. ESPN rated her 3 stars and 90/100. She was a first team All-State player in 2014 and 2015 and routinely scores in the double figures during games. She should be a freshman standout if her recruiting notes hold true.
