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.
In addition to losing Steffon Mitchell to a potential head injury and Jordan Chatman to foul trouble, the Eagles were run out of the Carrier Dome on Wednesday by the Orange, the worst shooting team in the ACC.
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.
Even 47 second half points were not enough to overcome the Eagle’s slow start, as Clemson outlasted BC in another competitive conference game.
Jerome Robinson scored 26 points in the second period to erase a 15-point halftime deficit, but came up empty on a potential-game winning shot with under 40 seconds remaining.
Jerome Robinson recorded a season-high 29 points, accounting for half of the Eagles’ scoring total, but even that kind of outing didn’t make up for BC’s poor 3-point shooting, turnovers, and limited interior presence.
Jordan Chatman’s prolific outing was enough to lead the Eagles past Richmond, despite the fact that BC was outrebounded on both ends of the floor and shot a mere 37 percent from the field in the second half.
Eight Eagles scored at least five points in their blowout win over Central Connecticut State on Sunday afternoon.
