It wasn’t pretty, but the Boston College women’s basketball team picked up a 55-52 win over Fordham today. The Eagles struggled to maintain their lead against the Rams, allowing 8 points off of turnovers and 17 second chance points. BC missed way too many shots, including a number of air balls, which resulted in a low scoring game.
The Eagles continue to be driven by their rookies this season. Mimi Bolden-Morris led the team with 16 points, including 4 3-pointers. Fellow freshman Sydney Lowery added 10 points and 5 rebounds. BC’s overseas players are the other highlights of this team - Martina Mosetti had 11 points and 5 rebounds off the bench, Georgia Pineau led the Eagles with 10 rebounds, and Taylor Ortlepp continues to show improved hustle.
Despite the strengths of these players, this team needs a lot of work if they are going to compete in the ACC. Defense needs to be come together better, turnovers need to be limited, and shooting accuracy needs to increase. These are the same problems the Eagles dealt with last year, which is concerning.
The Eagles return to action on Sunday as they head to Minnesota and look for their first road win of the season.
