With a chance to win the Fort Myers Tipoff tournament, BC takes on a fellow Jesuit school in Loyola Chicago—a team who made an improbable run to the Final Four last season.
Ky Bowman went off for a career-high 38 points in a win over the Cowboys in the Fort Myers Tipoff Tournament, but the Eagles once again struggled to keep their opponent from hanging around.
Coming off a season-opening victory, the Eagles will kick off the Fort Myers Tip-Off with a home game against St. Francis Brooklyn, a Northeast Conference opponent that BC hasn’t played since the 2015-16 season.
Last season, the Eagles dropped just five times all year—and one of those losses was to Connecticut in the Hockey East semifinals. BC didn’t leave much doubt in Friday’s rematch.
Having lost their first three games of the season for the first time since the 1930s, the Eagles return home desperate for a win against St. Cloud State—a team that swept BC last season.
Three different BC skaters—Lindsay Agnew, Megan Keller, and Daryl Watts—found the back of the cage, and the Eagles kicked off the conference slate with a decisive victory.
