The Eagles held steady in our latest ACC Power Rankings, while North Carolina climbed with an impressive week and the teams on the bubble continued to battle it out for position.
For the first time since 2015, the Eagles won a conference game on the road, needing a huge second half from Jerome Robinson & Co. to escape Pittsburgh with the victory.
After going winless in the Aggie Classic, BC responded with a back-and-forth win over Texas State that was anchored by Jessica Dreswick and Chloe Sharabba.
Despite BC’s Logan Hutsko netting a third period hat trick, the Eagles went winless in the Beanpot for the second consecutive year after a 5-4 overtime loss to Harvard on Monday night.
For the Eagles, a return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since the 2008-09 season is within reach as they head into their final six games of the year.
BC trailed entering the third period, but rallied behind forward Logan Hutsko and goalie Joe Woll, as the former scored the game-winner in overtime while the latter stopped 31 shots.
For all the turnover in the ACC power rankings this year, Virginia has been the one constant, keeping its pole position. Meanwhile, Louisville and Duke drop after tough losses.
Jerome Robinson single-handedly willed the Eagles back in the second half, but a weak supporting cast and consistent defensive breakdowns resulted in a 23rd-straight ACC road loss.
A new proposal on the table from the Big 12 could result in the NCAA easing transfer restrictions on student athletes—including preventing coaches from blocking destinations—which is a long overdue change.
