Sophomore guard Mikayla Venson (Arlington, Va.) scored a team-high 19 points at BC, the fifth time in the last six games she has led the Cavaliers in scoring. Venson, who ranks sixth in the ACC in made-threes per game (2.2), went 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. Venson currently ranks seventh in the ACC in scoring, averaging 15.3 points per game.
Sophomore forward Lauren Moses (Mount Holly, N.J.) had her fourth double-double of the season at BC, grabbing a career-high 15 rebounds while also scoring 11 points. Moses, who is tied for 10th in the ACC in rebounding at 7.3 per game, had six offensive boards against the Eagles.
