The North Carolina Lady Tar Heels have been one the nation’s hottest teams this season and continued their tear by defeating the Boston College Eagles 73-56.
The Tar Heels were led by Xylina McDaniel who scored sixteen points, had eight points, and two blocks. Diamond DeShields put up twelve points herself.
Allisha Gray scored sixteen points and had four rebounds, but did lead the team in turnovers with six.
North Carolina shot 24-58 in field goal range and shot 16-18 from the free throw line.
The up-tempo, transition offense was too much for the Lady Eagles to handle today. The Lady Heels led by as many as twenty-one points in today’s game, but would still fall short of their season average scoring per game.
Boston College was led by Kelly Hughes off of the bench with thirteen points, five rebounds, and four assists.
The Lady Tar Heels have nearly two weeks off before they welcome the Syracuse Orange to campus for their first ACC game in Chapel Hill on January 30th at 7pm!
