Sure, it's just an exhibition, but Premier Players is no St. Francis Xavier-style pushover - they gave NC State a game, falling 59-53 in Raleigh last week.
I didn't get to attend this game, but from the box score, a few very encouraging notes:
-It was a balanced attack from the Eagles - six players registered 9 or more points. The BC bench outscored the Premier Players bench, 28-17.
-Stef Murphy picked up where she left off, earning a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards
-Ayla Brown poured in 10 points off the bench
-Mickel Picco had 9 points, scoring a multiple of three for the first time this season; I am certain it won't be the last time
-My classmate, senior captain Corey Rusin, got the start and scored 11 points. Way to go Corey!
-BC shot 49.2% from the field and 86.7% from the line.
