BC 54, Fairfield 53; 3:09 Left Second Half

  • Murphy hits the free throw and its 47-45 BC back in the lead.
  • Wrice catches the ball from Caskin and steps into the three and hits it, 48-47, Wrice with 23 points.
  • Swords scores over the Stags frontcourt and its 49-48 BC retakes the lead again.
  • Lowenthal fakes a drive and knocks down a mid range jumper, 50-49 Stags
  • Wrice drives and draws a lot of contact and goes to the line for two shots...she hits one of two, but Lowenthal comes up with a huge offensive rebound on the miss.
  • Wrice gets open for a long three, but it is short and BC gets the ball back with 5 and a half minutes to go in the game.
  • Murphy gets the ball on the baseline with no one guarding here and drops in an easy layup, to tie the game at 51.
  • Wrice misses an open jumper, but Lowenthal collects another offensive rebound. She hits a jumper from the free throw line and its 53-51, Stags back in the lead.
  • Not a good job by the scoreboard operators...BC misses the front end of the one and one and the Stags rebound the ball, but the horn sounds for a sub, stopping the game momentarily as everyone freezes. Fairfield gets the ball out of bounds and everything is fine again.
  • BC hits a 3 and takes the lead back 54-53.
  • Shields drives on Geehan, who steps in and takes a charge to get the ball back for Fairfield heading into the final media timeout of the game.
  • It's time now for the Fairifield University Dance Team...All I Want For Christmas Is You really puts you in the Christmas spirit, it makes the whole night worthwhile.
