The Boston College women’s basketball team picked up another huge ACC win tonight, defeating FSU by a final score of 65-56. Florida State came into the game in third place in the ACC, and with a 17-3 overall record. This is BC’s second ever win against FSU, with their last victory coming in 2010 in a neutral site game.
The teams stayed close in the first half, trading baskets back and fourth, before the Eagle started to build more substantial lead in the third quarter. The teams stayed fairly even on rebounding (BC 34, FSU 33), steals (BC 6, FSU 7), and turnovers (BC 12, FSU 13), but BC played with an impressive accuracy. The Eagles had a 42% field goal percentage (FSU made 38% of their shots), a 50% three point percentage (FSU went just 4-for-20 from behind the arc), and an 80% free throw percentage. FSU also shot 80% from behind the free throw line, but the Eagles played a controlled game and FSU only took 5 free throws.
Emma Guy led the Eagles with another high scoring night, picking up a game leading 21 points. Taylor Soule added a double-double for the Eagles with 10 points and 11 rebounds, and Marnelle Garraud rounded out the double digit scored with 12 points, which included going 6-for-6 on free throws.
The Eagles return home this weekend to take on Wake Forest at 1 PM on Sunday in what should be an exciting match-up.
