The women's basketball team lost a tough one to FSU, 71-65, dropping them to 6-6 in ACC play. While this setback does make the push for an NCAA tournament a bit tougher, it's important to remember that this team wasn't even supposed to make the WNIT. 6-6 is a pretty good mark at this point.
The most troubling thing about tonight was that according to the recap on BCEagles.com, Brittany Johnson left the game with an injury. The story does not indicate the severity of the injury, but this could be a big problem. Johnson is one of the most naturally gifted players on the team, and is back this year after missing last season with an injury. Losing her would be tough. I will update this story here if I can get some more information.
The good news: Murphy had another outstanding game, dropping 24 points, and Swords chipped in 13 points. Those two continue to be the cornerstones of the offense.
BC's next game is Senior Night against UVA, next Thursday night at 7 PM. I strongly encourage going to the game if you can. This is a fun group to watch.
It's gameday. BC meets UNH tonight at Conte Forum in a truly huge game. Although UNH has virtually guaranteed themselves the Hockey East regular season title, this is BC's last chance to score victories against a top 10 team and secure at least a #2 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Eagles are currently in a logjam at the 8-11 spot in the pairwise rankings and could use a few big wins.
UNH comes into this game on a seven game unbeaten streak and is unquestionably one of the best teams in the country, so this will be a real test for the Eagles.
Is BC ready to make another Frozen Four run? We'll have a much better idea after this two game set.
The season is on the line for the women's hockey team tonight and tomorrow night against BU as BC is 1 point behind BU for the last Hockey East playoff spot.
Baseball gets started tonight @ Georgia Southern, 7 PM first pitch. Saturday's 2:30 PM game is televised on Comcast Sports Net (formerly known as FSN New England).
