The Miami Hurricanes women’s team hosted Boston College on Sunday night. They were looking for their fourth consecutive win after coming off a road upset win over the 13th ranked Syracuse Orange.

The women struggled in this game as the leading shooter for them in this game was forward Beatrice Mompremier. She scored 16 points on 4-6 shooting from the field. She also added 12 rebounds.

Mykea Gray also stood out for the Canes. While she only shot 4-10 from the field, she was almost perfect from the free throw line, going 10-11 from the line. It was a very competitive game, both teams had four starters in double figures. 

Poor shooting did hamper the Lady Canes’ offense as they made only 37.3% (19-51) shots from the field overall. Those struggles were manifested even more from 3-point range. Miami went 4-for-18 (22.2%) from behind the arc.

One bright spot was the 3-point defense for the Hurricanes, Boston College was even worse from downtown (3-18, 16.7%). Miami also had a dominant edge on the glass with a 42-27 rebounding advantage, led by the 12 from Mompremier.

Boston College kept it close through the first three quarters of the game.  Taylor Ortlepp led the Eagles with 17 points on 6-12 shooting from the field. Emma Guy and Georgia Pineau each scored 10 points respectively.

The Eagles even held a lead after the second and third quarters. Miami pulled away in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Eagles 21-14.
