On Thursday afternoon, the Boston College Eagles men’s basketball team faced off against the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers for a Thanksgiving afternoon consolation game in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, Missouri. The Eagles had a rough start, going down by as many as 8 points, but eventually came back to lead by 9 points with under 4 minutes to go. But BC a collapsed from there, letting the Ramblers go on a 14-2 run to win the game, 71-68.
Another slow start for the Eagles had them playing from behind early, something they generally haven’t done very well under Earl Grant. BC launched up plenty of threes to try to keep their scoring up, but they only made 4/23 and couldn’t find much scoring elsewhere either. Quinten Post played well and led the way with 25 points, but only Devin McGlockton showed up to support him on offense. Scorers like Claudell Harris, Jaeden Zackery, and Prince Aligbe hardly made an impact and it doomed them down the stretch when they couldn’t get a bucket.
BC will travel to play Vanderbilt on Wednesday.
