Preview

The Boston College women’s basketball team shouldn’t have much of a problem with this one, as the Riverhawks have yet to play a game this season due to COVID 19 postponements. So while the Eagles have already had 3 games to get settled in, develop some chemistry, and figure out what the need to work on, the Riverhawks are likely to have some game one growing pains. This is particularly true since Lowell is a young team - 9 out of 13 players on the roster are freshman and sophomores.

BC also just has the advantage in terms of skill - the Eagles are 4-0 against UML and when the teams met just over a year ago the Eagles earned a decisive 89-46 lead. That lead was spearheaded by Emma Guy with 20 points and 10 rebounds, but between Taylor Soule and Clara Ford, the Eagles still shouldn’t have a problem.

If all goes as expected, this could be a nice confidence booster for BC as they look towards ACC play. It could also be a good opportunity for BC to work on things like limiting their turnovers and getting some 3 pointers.
