Alexis Peterson, Brianna Butler and Diamond Henderson weren’t producing.“I told them if you want to win the game, you guys can’t play like that,” Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “You guys have to make shots… The more shots we made, obviously we could get into our press and get pressure and we did a good job of doing that.”It wasn’t the guards who came out firing in the second half, but the reserve bigs who picked up for the starting center, who was out with a right ankle injury.In Briana Day’s place, twin sister Bria Day made her first career start, scoring two points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Taylor Ford also pitched in at center with a season-high 15 points and six rebounds, as the No. 25 Orange (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) defeated Boston College (8-10, 0-5), 64-46, on Sunday afternoon at Conte Forum.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBriana Day, the ACC’s second best rebounder with 10.5 boards per game entering Sunday, tweaked her ankle on Thursday against Wake Forest, but returned for nine minutes after the injury. Hillsman said she could have played today, but chose not to take any risks.Despite her absence, SU outscored BC 26-14 in the paint on the day and 18-8 in the second half. While Syracuse was outrebounded in the game, SU grabbed seven more boards than the Eagles in the second frame, largely in part to Bria Day and Ford.“I thought they did a good job rebounding the ball,” Hillsman said. “I thought they did good as a whole, really good job being athletic in our press. So I thought they did an awesome job.”The Orange’s defense sparked its offense, especially in the second half, and the Eagles’ 23 turnovers led to 23 SU points.Tied at 26 with 17 minutes to play, Syracuse kicked it into gear.Peterson picked Ashley Kelsick’s pocket and scored an easy layup on the other end. Ford attacked the rim and converted an and-one. Bria Day held the ball in the low post and her shot was blocked, but picked up the loose ball and finished inside.All of a sudden, just three minutes later, it was a 10-point game and Boston College never came within single digits the rest of the way.“Our players did a great job of coming into the game and contributing,” Hillsman said. “When you play a game like that, when you have a player out and you kind of have a short bench, everyone stepped in and made some shots and carried the load.” Commentslast_img read more
