CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – It was just the right situation. Maryland, the clear favorite in the game, had just scored their signature win of the season over Duke. Many teams have a letdown following such a big win unless they have had a number of them, and that’s not the case for this Maryland team as they have a dearth of such wins. The Terrapins are also young. Sure enough, it was also visible in Boston College’s 69-58 victory over Maryland on Tuesday night, but there was much more.
Boston College is growing up before our eyes.
“I don’t know if I’ve been more proud of my team than tonight,” said head coach Steve Donahue. “I thought we just played really inspired basketball for 40 minutes.”
