Final Stats

BOSTON (AP) — Brooke Queenan had a career-high 25 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 21 Boston College to a 79-69 victory over Miami in a game played in front of only about 200 fans Sunday because of the storm in the Northeast.

Aja Parham added 17 points, Lisa Macchia 12 and Kindyll Dorsey 11 as BC (19-6, 6-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) won its seventh straight game and evened an 82-68 loss to the Hurricanes in Coral Gables, Fla. on Jan. 19.

Macchia also had a career-high 14 rebounds.

Tamara James led the Hurricanes (15-9, 5-6) with 18 points, but she wasn’t really a factor like in the teams’ first meeting, when she had 25 points. Katie Hayek had 14 points and Renee Taylor 13.

The Eagles led 41-24 at halftime after shooting 54 percent (14-of-26) in the first half.

BC, which hit 11 of its first 19 shots, went on a 13-0 run early in the second half to take control. During the run, the Eagles controlled the boards and held Miami scoreless for 5:22. The Hurricanes also went 6:17 without a field goal.

Miami, which trailed by 25 with just over 10 minutes to play, closed the gap with a late charge.

The contest was close for the first 10½ minutes before Queenan and Dorsey keyed a 16-2 run over a 3:56 stretch. Queenan had seven points, including a 3-pointer from the corner that made it 37-20 with 5:17 to play. Dorsey had five points, and a 3 of her own that gave BC its first double-digit lead 32-20.
