In a word, Saturday afternoon’s game between the Boston College Eagles and the Syracuse Orange was ugly.
Any game with a significant point differential can be ugly, but Syracuse’s 76-53 rout of the Boston College Eagles was ugly in its own right.
In the rout, the Eagles turned the ball over 20 times, which was accentuated by the Eagles’ struggles from beyond the arc.
Also giving the Eagles fits was scoring. Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson, normally offensive stalwarts, went a combined 4-for-20 from the field, and only combined for 12 points in the effort. Making the matter even worse was the amount of missed shots that fell well short of the net.
In essence, everything the Eagles did well in their opening game on New Year’s Day against the Orange did not go well.
The Eagles return home to Conte Forum to take on the Virginia Cavaliers in BC’s first game at home since the beginning of the spring semester.
