Hoops teases again in loss to Syracuse
Sometimes it so very simple. BC took a lead a few minutes into the second half and Syracuse answered with a 3. And then another 3. And then another. The game was basically over and BC lost again. Aside from the mix of bad luck and defensive lapses, what really frustrated is that they couldn't answer Syracuse during those stretches. They couldn't buy a basket and missed plenty of layups/putbacks.
If you're looking for encouragement, Barnes-Thompkins and Milon played well. Eli Carter did not and he still had a few of his ridiculous shots that he chucked before anyone in a BC jersey could be close to the basket for a rebound.
One more pain point: Conte was filled with orange.
There has been a lot of piling on by the Boston Media this week, so I will try not to make it worse today. Hopefully this team does something right before the season ends.
