Boston College women’s basketball begins ACC play in Blacksburg against a strong Virginia Tech squad that has just three losses on the year
After being outscored 21-6 in the second quarter, the Eagles recovered in the latter portion of play, forcing overtime and, ultimately, outlasting UNH.
Right from the get-go, the Pirates put the pressure on BC, both employing the full-court press and jumping out to a 12-point, first-half lead. Seton Hall never let up, even when the game got out of hand.
BC hung with the Terriers for the entire first half, and even led entering the break. But an 18-4 BU run in the back half of play proved to be too much for the Eagles to overcome.
After a rough couple of years for BC Athletics, the younger members of the basketball teams offer a reason for Eagles fans to be optimistic.
