After one week of ACC action, one thing is clear: No. 1 Clemson is heads and shoulders above the rest of the conference, while the likes of Syracuse, Virginia, and North Carolina follow.
The Eagles announced their slate of games on May 15, and it includes a pair of Pac-12 opponents, four different mini tournaments, and five weeks on the road to start the season.
The Eagles put up a fight in the first round of the ACC Tournament, but couldn’t complete the upset, losing 4-2 to Clemson Wednesday morning. Derek Austin notched a win on the first singles court in the defeat.
With Clemson dealing BC yet another loss, the Eagles have now lost five matches in a row after a 9-0 start to the season.
Marcquise Reed was unstoppable at the tail end of both halves, recording a season-high 31 points, nine rebounds, and four assists, and the Eagles could only keep pace for so long, once again letting a second-period lead slip on the road.
Emma Guy led all scorers with 19 points, but the Eagles simply couldn’t keep up with Clemson’s hot shooting. The Tigers shot 59 percent from the floor and blew out BC 91-58.
BC hosted College GameDay last Saturday for the first time since 2009, and—despite the loss to No. 2 Clemson—the excitement surrounding the program rivaled that of decade’s past.
During his Monday weekly press conference, head coach Steve Addazio told reporters that both Anthony Brown and A.J. Dillon are day-to-day, heading into Week 12.
