After an exciting victory over UNC last week, Boston College women’s basketball dropped a close match to Virginia last night. The Eagles kept things close for much of the game, but were outscored by 13 points in the second period. The final score was 68-57 in favor of UVA.
Freshman Milan Bolden-Morris continues to be a major factor for the Eagles - she led the team with 14 points and 4 3-pointers last night. Of course, 14 points is lower than you want your leading scorer to have, but Bolden-Morris shows a lot of promise. Emma Guy also had a solid game with 12 points and a team leading 8 rebounds.
Surprisingly, BC had fewer turnovers than UVA last night (15 vs. 16). However, turnovers were still a problem for BC, as UVA scored 12 points off of turnovers and BC scored only 7. Rebounds were also an issue for BC against Virginia - the Eagles picked up only 24 rebounds compared to UVA’s 35.
All told, this team still needs a lot of work, but close losses against ACC teams are better outcomes than many expected based on this team’s non-conference play.
