Last year, BC entered ACC play undefeated. But by the time the regular season ended, it was on the outside looking in. Wednesday’s schedule release gives a glimpse of its road back to the conference tournament.
Martin Jarmond added another Big Ten opponent to BC’s future schedule. The Eagles will face off against Michigan State in a home-and-home series during the 2024 and 2025 seasons.
In his final year with Illinois State, Deontae Hawkins led the Redbirds in scoring and rebounding, and nearly took them to the NCAA Tournament. Now, he’ll take one more jab at the tournament—this time, with BC.

In April, North Carolina scored at least 15 runs in each of its wins over BC. On Thursday, in ACC Tournament pool play, the Tar Heels weren’t far off from reaching that mark again.
Coming into its series against Notre Dame, BC had recorded just 11 home runs. Every other team in the ACC had hit at least 25. But on Saturday, the Eagles blasted four, en route to their fifth-straight victory.
Sam Apuzzo’s three goals and four assists in the win against Canisius were enough to break BC’s single-season scoring record and make her the first Eagle to ever log at least 100 points in a season.
BC may not have won its weekend series against Wake Forest, but Dan Metzdorf’s shutout performance on Saturday was just enough to keep the Eagles in the hunt for the last spot in the ACC Tournament.
At first, Ky Bowman was an inconsistent role player. Now, he’s one of the ACC’s best and, as a result, The Heights’ Breakout Male Athlete of the Year.
