After leaving him to put on a one-man show for almost the entire month of February, Olivier Hanlan’s teammates delivered a terrific performance to help BC pick up its second ACC win this season.
The star guard’s 39 points, a season high, couldn’t lift the anemic Eagles over the Panthers.
Despite great offensive outings by Dennis Clifford and Aaron Brown, Notre Dame’s high-powered offense proved too much. The Fighting Irish shot 66 percent from the field, dominating the inside and giving the Eagles’ defense fits all night
Olivier Hanlan nearly outscored the Seminoles on his own in the first half, but the guard couldn’t do everything in a 69-60 loss.
Despite solving Syracuse’s vaunted 2-3 zone and locking down forward Rakeem Christmas, the Eagles’ transition defense failed in a disappointing loss to the Orange.
Once again, the Eagles hung tough against a superior opponent, but weren’t able to finish the job Wednesday night against No. 10 Louisville.
BC couldn’t keep up its strong play from Saturday’s game against UVA in its loss to the Orange.
The Eagles were led by their impressive leading scorer last night. This time, however, it was not Olivier Hanlan.
A win does not excuse BC’s issues in finding an identity on the court.
