As the NCAA women’s basketball season rolls on, the Boston College Eagles continue to struggle. BC is now on a 9 game losing streak after falling to Georgia Tech by a score of 67-43 last night. With the loss, the Eagles have dropped to 6-18 overall and 1-10 in the ACC, with 5 regular season games remaining.
After a quiet game last weekend, Milan Bolden-Morris was back in fighting form for the Eagles, leading the team with 18 points. Taylor Ortlepp added a respectable 11 points and 5 rebounds, but nothing much else good happened for BC during the game.
BC has struggled with turnovers all season, but had an astounding 35 turnovers last night. That’s almost a turnover a minute. That’s almost as many turnovers as BC had points (43). It is extremely troubling that such a coachable issue has continued to be such a major problem throughout the past few seasons. Georgia Tech scored 26 points off turnovers during last night’s game.
BC also struggled with rebounding. No BC player had more than 5 rebounds, while Lorela Cubaj led GT with 10. The Eagles were out-rebounded 41-23, and particularly struggled with offensive rebounds, only picking up 4.
There isn’t much to say about this team that I haven’t already said, but this was a particularly rough game.
On Sunday, BC will play Pittsburgh as the Eagles host their annual Play4Kay game. You can donate to their fundraiser for breast cancer research here: https://pledgeit.org/bc-play4kay.
