The Boston College women’s basketball team earned another decisive victory today, defeating St. Francis College Brooklyn by a score of 106-69. The Eagles were expected to win this game, but they truly dominated play from the get-go. In fact, BC broke the program record for points scored in a half with 63 points in the first.
After BC’s win over UMass Lowell earlier this week, I noted that this team seems to have much better bench depth than in seasons past, and that was on display again tonight. Five separate Eagles scored in the double digits tonight: Taylor Soule (24), Cameron Swartz (18), Milan Bolden-Morris (17), Makayla Dickens (12), and Emma Guy (11). Bolden-Morris also picked up 8 rebounds, and Georgia Pineau just missed out on a double-double with 9 points and 10 rebounds. Every healthy player on BC’s roster scored at least 2 points and recorded at least 2 rebounds today. (Worth noting is that senior Taylor Ortlepp did not play today. We will update as we get more info.)
Beyond just scoring way more points than the Terriers, BC also nabbed an impressive 55 rebounds, 5 blocks, and 14 steals. The Eagles had 18 turnovers, which isn’t ideal, but it is better to see them taking chances that result in turnovers than playing it too safe. BC’s shooting accuracy also continues to look better, with the Eagles shooting 50% for field goals and 84% from behind the free throw line.
BC returns to action on Wednesday at Holy Cross.
