The Boston College women’s basketball team is now 3-3 overall and 0-3 on the road after a loss to Boston University yesterday. The last time BC lose to the Terriers was in 2012-13 and this loss should make fans even more concerned than they already were. BC almost managed a comeback, but ultimately lost by a score of 61-57.
The Eagles had only 12 turnovers to BU’s 21, but were out-rebounded 45-32. The Eagles went 10-for-10 from the line, but shot 33% overall.
The Eagles were led, yet again, by their freshman, which at least says something good about the future of the team. Sydney Lowery led BC with 18 points and Mimi Bolden-Morris had 9 points and 6 rebounds. Lowery made 53% of her attempted baskets, which helped to make up for inaccurate shooting from a number of other players. Sophomore Georgia Pineau, who continues to show improvement, led the Eagles with 11 rebounds in the game.
This is shaping up to be another extremely frustrating season for BC WBB. This is a team that should be able to recruit decent enough players to compete, particularly in non-conference play, but year after year the team’s roster is shallow and basic basketball skills, such as limiting turnovers and not shooting air balls, are lacking.
