All told, an 80-69 loss to a highly ranked Notre Dame team is better than I expected for this BC women’s basketball team. There were still a lot of mistakes, but BC fought harder and played a little better than they have in a while.
Mariella Fasoula led BC in points, as usual. She scored 20 points and recorded 14 rebounds for a double-double. Emma Guy also had a decent game, with 14 points and 4 rebounds.
The Eagles allowed 20 turnovers, which isn’t great, but is fewer than they have had in a while. Notre Dame scored 23 points off of turnovers. Getting the turnovers under control could go a long way in helping BC to pick up more wins.
Despite struggling throughout the game, this BC team continued to fight. One good thing that can be said about these players is that even when faced with a losing record and loss after loss, they seem to consistently be trying and not giving up.
BC returns to Conte on Sunday to face Duke.
