The Boston College Eagles completed a road trip to forget Sunday evening, falling victim to a previously winless Santa Clara Broncos team 62-45. The Eagles had a night to forget from the field, shooting 28.3% in the game. The first half did not paint a more flattering picture, as the Eagles shot 21.2% from the field in the half.
The Eagles turned in a largely listless effort in front of a sparse crowd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Following two difficult games against the Michigan State Spartans and the UC Irvine Anteaters, the Eagles appeared to not have much energy to compete through most of the game.
The one bright spot for the Eagles appeared to be Eli Carter. Carter, as it is beginning to be customary for the transfer graduate, had a difficult first half from the field. Carter heated up in the second, scoring 13 points and shot 54.5% from the field. Carter's 16 points, however, were not enough to combat an overall poor performance from his team.
The Eagles will face Penn State on Dec. 2 at Conte Forum.
