CORAL GABLES, Fla. – After setting a new program ACC record with 100 points in its last outing, the University of Miami women’s basketball team will conclude January competition Sunday against Boston College.

Miami is coming off a 100-88 win over North Carolina Thursday night. The Hurricanes reached the century mark for the first time since Dec. 16, 2011 and became the first team to score 100 points in an ACC game this season.
Senior guard Jessica Thomas tied career highs in points (24) and assists (seven) in the triumph, while sophomore guard Laura Cornelius had 19 points. Redshirt junior guard/forward Shaneese Bailey logged a season-high 17 points and junior forward Keyanna Harris had a career-best 17 points, too.
Boston College is 8-13 (1-7 ACC) so far in 2016-17, dropping each of its last seven contests. Sophomore center Mariella Fasoula paces the Eagles in both points (16.4) and rebounds (7.8) per game. The Eagles posted a 15-16 (2-14 ACC) mark in 2015-16 and were tabbed No. 13/14 in this year’s ACC preseason polling.
