In the second half, GW whittled the deficit to 13, 57-44 on a hoop by Amanda LoCascio with 10:30 left in regulation. A basket by Kathrin Ress increased the Eagles margin to 59-44 and three-point field goal by Clare Droesch 4 minutes and 31 seconds later put Boston College ahead, 68-50, on their way to the 19-point victory.
