Boston College Women’s Basketball Falls to Providence in First Loss of the Season

The Eagles fell to the Friars in a back-and-forth game and are now 6-1 on the season

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Boston College Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College women’s basketball struggled in tonight’s matchup against the Providence Friars, losing to Providence by a score of 61-57. The Eagles led with 10 steals and had only 14 turnovers to PC’s 29, but accuracy killed BC’s chances. The Eagles shot just 30.6% overall and made 2 out of the 15 3 pointers they attempted. BC also struggled with rebounding against Providence, despite showing significant improvement in that area this season - Providence had 45 rebounds to BC’s 38. The Eagles were also hurt by the fact that Providence was all over Marnelle Garraud, which significantly cut into BC’s scoring chances.

This was a generally sloppy game overall, with a lot of traveling violations and missed passes for each team.

The Eagles were led by Emma Guy, who continues to have a stellar junior season. Guy picked up a double-double with 14 rebounds and 16 points. Guy was the only BC player to make double digits in either points or rebounds - in fact, the next highest rebounders each had just 3 rebounds apiece. On defense, Taylor Ortepp led BC with 4 steals and Emma Guy with 2 blocks.

BC returns to action on Sunday, when they face Columbia at Conte at 2 PM.
