The Eagles were outscored in the paint, 64-14, and saw a nine-point halftime deficit stretch to 34 as they were overmatched by No. 5 Notre Dame on Saturday afternoon.
Even though Georgia Pineau racked up 11 points in the first 10 minutes of play, and the Eagles stormed out to a 23-12 lead, their offensive firepower was unsustainable, allowing Louisville to run away with a 35-point win.
Georgia Pineau dropped 23 points along with seven rebounds, and BC turned the ball over just three times in the second half en route to its first victory in over a month.
The Eagles enter Atlanta, Ga. on a month-long losing streak, looking to beat Georgia Tech on the road for the first time in nine years and avenge last season’s first-round, ACC Tournament loss.
BC entered the second half tied with North Carolina State, but a 29-14 run in the third by the Wolfpack handed the Eagles an eighth straight loss.
After turning the ball over nine times and managing just 17 points in the first half, BC more than tripled its scoring output in the latter portion of play, but, ultimately, failed to make up the ground it lost in the opening 20 minutes.
BC trailed by just three after one quarter, but turnovers and poor 3-point shooting resulted in an 18-point blowout loss to Syracuse at home on Sunday.
Milan Bolden-Morris was held scoreless for the first time this season, and, as a team, BC shot below 40 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 23 times, losing to Duke for the third year in a row.
BC faltered at the end of the first half against Miami in its fourth-straight loss, as the Hurricanes went on a 17-5 run, en route to a convincing 65-43 win.
