RECAP: Boston College Falls Victim To Foul Trouble, Snakebitten Offense, Loses to Notre Dame 76-49

Loss moves BC to 0-6 in conference.

The Boston College Eagles thus far in conference play have one similar characteristic to the movie Groundhog Day.

It is the same story. Over. And over. And over. And over again.

Thus the Eagles lost Saturday afternoon in South Bend, Ind. in what has become template format. Turnovers hampered an otherwise decent first half for BC, and the Eagles became snakebitten offensively in the second half, all the while unable to stop a strong offensive onslaught.

The Eagles were able to overcome a sluggish start in the first half to pull, at points in the first half, within one possession. The Eagles were never able to garner the lead in the first half, and the Eagles went to the locker room down 34-29.

Much like the Eagles performed in the second half on Wednesday night against Miami, the Eagles offense was snakebitten in the second half, shooting 20% in the half. Eli Carter and Jerome Robinson shot a combined 2-for-13 from the field in the second half. Incidentally, the Eagles closed the game making only 2 of their final 14 shots from the field.

The Eagles take on Florida State at home Tuesday evening at 7 PM.
