The UVa. women’s basketball team (12-11, 5-5 ACC) fell 69-65 on the roadThursday night (Feb. 6) at Boston College (12-12, 3-7 ACC).
UVa. improved to 9-1 in the ACC, its best start to a conference season since 1981-82. The Cavaliers won their 14th consecutive home ACC game, the second-longest streak in school history (16 straight home ACC wins from 1980-1982).
UVa. led Boston College 20-5 10 minutes in, led by 19 at halftime, and still led by 19 with 4:47 to go. Then BC came back. With a vengeance.
#20 UVa. jumped out to a 20-5 lead in the opening 10 minutes, then coasted, perhaps a bit too much, in defeating Boston College 77-67 Wednesday night in Charlottesville, Va.
Boston College’s Joe Rahon scored a team-high 20 points and led the Eagles to a 76-52 victory over Virginia Tech Wednesday evening. The Eagles hit 14 three-pointers in the game. Virginia Tech’s Jarell Eddie scored a game-high 22 points.
