The Boston College women’s basketball season came to an end yesterday with a 4 point loss to Georgia Tech in the first round of the 2017 ACC Tournament. Despite maintaining a lead for a decent chunk of the game, the Eagles fell by a score of 71-67.
The Eagles made 46% of their field goals and shot 82% from behind the free throw line, but turnovers and rebounding struggles allowed Georgia Tech to take over. The Eagles allowed 23 turnovers and had 33 rebounds to Georgia Tech’s 40. BC also got into foul trouble early, with star player Mariella Fasoula entering halftime with 3 fouls.
Fasoula led the Eagles with 21 points and 9 rebounds. Seniors Kailey Edwards and Kelly Hughes had 13 and 13 points respectively in their last home game. Senior Emilee Daley played 9 minutes in the game and made 1 basket.
With two of their top players graduating, including the program’s leading 3-point scorer (Hughes), the Eagles are going to need to put some serious work in if they want to win more games next year.
