ACC Women's Lacrosse Tournament 2016: Quarterfinals
Blacksburg, VA - on the campus of Virginia Tech
#7 Boston College (10-7, 2-5 ACC)
#2 Syracuse (14-4, 5-2 ACC)
Game Time: 5 PM ET
Storyline: After a disappointing regular season by BC standards, the Eagles look to get a measure of redemption in the ACC tournament. BC knows they can beat the Orange - they toppled Syracuse in the two teams' only regular season matchup. Last year, the Orange knocked out BC at this stage of the tournament, despite the Eagles being the higher seed; BC looks to return the favor this season. While last year's ACC WLAX tournament matchup was crucial in the #OrangeEagle, this year Syracuse has blown BC away, so we are merely seeking to narrow the deficit.
A win today would give BC a berth in the ACC semifinals; the winner takes on the winner of Louisville vs. Notre Dame tomorrow.
