Clemson Hands BC First Conference Loss

Boston College faced its most difficult test of the season in Clemson, South Carolina and could not come up with a passing grade. The No. 21 Tigers trounced the Eagles 72-56. With the loss the Eagles now fall to 1-1 in the ACC.

At halftime, Clemson had a 12 point cushion and it only grew in the second. Tanner Smith nailed a three-pointer just eight seconds into the second half pushing the lead to 15. At its closest, Boston Collge could only managed to slice two points off that margin. The 13-point deficit lasted for 20 seconds and the Eagles didn’t respond, going scoreless for nearly six minutes.

Second Half Problems Irrelevant

When BC’s next basket occurred the game was even further out of reach at 69-50 with 2:52 remaining. BC trailed for all but 2:02 of the game. Its only lead of the contest came when Joe Trapani’s layup gave the Eagles a 2-0 lead.

It won’t get any easier for the Eagles. Their southern road trip continues Wednesday in Durham, North Carolina to take on Duke. The Blue Devils are 13-2 and ranked fifth in both polls.
