Despite a 33 point effort from Ky Bowman, a 54% free throw shooting effort doomed the Boston College Eagles against the Fairfield Stags. The Eagles fell to the Stags 89-83 at the Birthday of Basketball game at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
The Stags opened a lead early in the game thanks to eight three-point shots made during the first half. Meanwhile, in the second half, bad mistakes, struggles from the stripe, and turnovers doomed a BC comeback bid in the second half.
With the loss to Fairfield, the Eagles fall to 6-6 on the year. The loss also snaps a two-game winning streak for the Eagles dating back to its win against Auburn at Madison Square Garden.
Fairfield snapped a three-game losing streak, and improved to 6-4 on the year with the win.
Boston College returns to Conte Forum Friday afternoon for an early game against former Big East foe Providence. Tip-off is at 4 PM.
