Despite missing out on their ninth-straight NCAA Tournament, the Eagles finished with a winning record and reached the postseason for the first time since 2010-11.
The Eagles couldn’t hold on despite lights-out three point shooting in the first half, as the Seminoles took advantage of BC’s poor ball handling and discipline towards the game’s end.
For the first time since 2015, the Eagles won a conference game on the road, needing a huge second half from Jerome Robinson & Co. to escape Pittsburgh with the victory.
Against Notre Dame, Jerome Robinson logged a career-high 46 points—the most scored by any ACC player this season and three shy of the program record—but even that kind of outing wasn’t enough to make up for BC’s defensive blunders.
Ky Bowman scored eight of BC’s 11 points in overtime as the Eagles snapped a three-game losing streak with a 80-72 win over visiting Georgia Tech on Sunday afternoon.
The Eagles went on a 20-6 run late to make it close, but turnovers and poor bench play cost them as they fell to Louisville, dropping to just 1-5 on the road.
Although BC shot a season-worst 37.3 percent from the floor, it forced 15 turnovers, attempted a season-high 35 free throws, and protected the ball better than it has the past two months in its first win over Wake Forest since 2014-15.
Eight Eagles scored at least five points in their blowout win over Central Connecticut State on Sunday afternoon.
After recording a combined six points over the past three games, BC’s bench racked up 23 on Sunday afternoon, as the Eagles rode a dominant second half to another double-digit victory.
