It was all smiles from Mike King and Co. after a 5-3 win as the Eagles and Hurricanes get set for a winner-take-all Game Three on Sunday afternoon.
Two Miami home runs in a four-run third inning off ace Justin Dunn and a collapse by the bullpen put led to a deficit that even a scrappy Boston College team couldn’t overcome.
The Eagles saw improvements from Jerome Robinson and Darryl Hicks, yet couldn’t overcome poor ball screen defense and bad shot selection from leading scorer Eli Carter.
Down by just one point at halftime, BC suffered a second half breakdown to keep the Hurricanes rolling.
The Eagles’ superstar point guard did all he could in a loss to the Hurricanes, dropping 32 points and eight rebounds.
