In an exciting matinee meeting against South Carolina State, Boston College proved they’re a force to be reckoned with in the young NCAA season.
Steffon Mitchell scored 21 points and Jordan Chatman had 13 points as the Eagles completely dominated on Saturday afternoon.
In a post-game interview, BC coach Jim Christian said “I thought we played really unselfishly, the ball was moving. Some of the best possessions we had were when we didn’t score, but the plays were run. It was just a really good feel for where guys were.”
The Eagles began the second half strong by scoring 12 of the first 13 points to push what was a 28-point halftime lead to 39 – 59-20.
BC held SCST to 32.1 percent shooting and outrebounded it, 50-26.
The Eagles remain home for a game against Sacred Heart (0-1) on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
