The Boston College women’s basketball team picked up another road ACC win this afternoon, defeating Clemson 70-68 in a real nail-biter. The Eagles took a dominant 41-26 lead into halftime, but Clemson staged a second half comeback and things were tied at 66 with a minute and forty-two seconds to play. Taylor Soule scored with a minute and seventeen seconds to give BC a 68-66 lead, but Clemson tied the game again with 44 seconds to go. Luckily for BC, two over the limit Clemson fouls gave Makayla Dickens two chances to take a free throw (at 5 seconds and 1 second), and she made both to secure the 70-68 victory for BC. The Eagles are now 6-6 in the ACC and 13-10 overall.
The Eagles were out-rebounded (39-34) and outshot (64-59), but played solid defense and played with more accuracy than Clemson, making 47% of their field goals compared to Clemson’s 42%.
Emma Guy had another phenomenal game for BC, leading all players with 24 points and adding 8 rebounds. Makayla Dickens, who scored the game winner for BC, also had another strong game with 21 points and 7 rebounds.
Next up, BC plays Notre Dame this Thursday evening at Conte Forum.
