The Eagles made a tremendous leap forward in their first season under head coach Joanna Bernabei-McNamee, but there is still work to be done, as evidenced by the season-ending nine-game losing streak
In Joanna Bernabei-McNamee’s first 13 games as head coach, BC has taken tremendous steps forward from last year in pretty much every facet of the game.
The schedule features a non-conference portion highlighted by local rivals Holy Cross and BU, as well as the always-tough ACC slate, which includes games against two teams who made the Final Four last season: Louisville and Notre Dame
BC Athletics announced the hiring of Joanna Bernabei-McNamee as the new Women’s Basketball head coach, taking over for Erik Johnson who resigned after six years at the start of March.
In his six years with the Eagles, Johnson was just 68-115, including 19-77 in ACC play and failed to finish a single season above .500, let alone reach double-digit wins each of the past two years.
The Eagles trailed by nine after one quarter, fought their way back into it, but were ultimately handed a fourth ACC tournament opening-round loss in five years by North Carolina.
BC entered the break with a two-point lead, but nothing else went right for head coach Erik Johnson’s team after that, as FSU outscored the Eagles, 42-12, in the second period, turning a once-competitive game into a blowout.
Following a three-game homestand, the Eagles will travel to Tallahassee on Thursday night to take on No. 9 Florida State, their third top-10 opponent in as many games.
