No. 3 Duke crushes Boston College
Chestnut Hill, MA – Chelsea Gray posted her second career triple-double with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on Sunday as No. 3 Duke crushed Boston College, 90-53, at Silvio O. Conte Forum.
Gray led five Duke (13-0, 3-0 ACC) scorers in double-figures, while Tricia Liston netted 17 points, Richa Jackson added 16 points off the bench, and Elizabeth Williams and Haley Peters contributed 13 and 12 points, respectively, in the blowout victory.
Kristen Doherty scored a team-high 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting from the floor and added six rebounds for the Eagles (6-7, 0-2), who have lost three straight.
Duke came out of the gate on fire, outscoring Boston College 32-5 over the first 11-plus minutes of the first half. Katie Zenevitch finally snapped the run with a jumper, but Duke kept the pressure up and led comfortably, 55-20, at the half.
The Blue Devils shot an incredible 79.3 percent (23-of-29) from the floor, including 7-of-8 from beyond the arc, in the opening half. Boston College, by contrast, shot just 29.2 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 15 times.
Boston College opened the second half with a 13-4 run, but the deficit was ultimately too large for the Eagles to overcome.
