The Boston College women’s basketball team dropped to 0-3 on the road after falling to Charlotte today in Puerto Rico by a score of 84-68. The 49ers took an early 21-15 lead in the first quarter, but the Eagles stayed in the game and even took a brief lead in the third period before allowing Charlotte to run away with the game again. Although this was a disappointing result, it is nice to see that this team is capable of getting back into games (even though they ultimately lost that momentum today).

As they have been in the past, turnovers were a huge factor in BC’s loss. The Eagles had 18 turnovers which led to 24 points for the 49ers. The teams were even in rebounds with 34 each, and Charlotte shot at 50% while BC made 44% of their baskets.

The Eagles did have some strong performances today despite the loss, including 19 points and 9 rebounds from Emma Guy and 18 points from transfer Cameron Swartz, who has really been coming into her own and adjusting to Coach Mac’s style of play well.

The Eagles will face Tulane tomorrow as they attempt to break their road losing streak.
