A blown lead is hardly something that is foreign to fans of the Boston College Eagles’ men’s basketball team. Yet the blown lead came earlier than normal, as the Eagles were victims of a 17-2 run by the Irish in the last seven minutes of the first half, and, despite having a seven point lead at one point in the game, fell to Notre Dame 82-66 in South Bend, Ind.
The Eagles opened Wednesday evening’s game up 26-19. However, a ten point effort by V.J. Beachem powered the Irish to a 36-28 lead at the half.
From there, the Eagles never were able to get back into the game, trailing by as much as 20 points during the half.
The Eagles were also hampered by 15 turnovers in the game, off which the Irish scored 18 points.
Ky Bowman scored 19 points in the effort.
