The Boston College women’s basketball defeated Clemson last night in a hard fought 85-73 victory to move forward in the ACC Tournament. Tonight, the Eagles will face Duke in the quarterfinals. The Blue Devils received a double bye and this will be their first game of the tournament.

Duke and Boston College met in early December during the regular season and the Blue Devils pulled off on 85-73 win. However, this was before the Eagles had really found their groove and started picking up big wins. BC played their hearts out last night, so a lot of this game should come down to recovery - can the Eagles bounce back enough to keep up with the well-rested Blue Devils?
