Sophomore Tyus Battle led Syracuse with 29 points in an 85-70 loss to Boston College Wednesday night at Conte Forum. Freshman Oshae Brissett finished with 18 points and nine rebounds. Junior Frank Howard scored 17 points and dished out five assists.
That effort would not be enough, though.
Ky Bowman led the Eagles with 23 points and five assists. Jerome Robinson added 22 points with seven assists and Jordan Chatman totaled 18 points.
Battle scored six straight points to trim the Syracuse deficit to seven with 10:02 remaining. Boston College used an 11-3 run to take a 69-54 lead and the Orange were unable to cut the deficit back down to single digits.
While the Orange saw their tournament hopes take a serious hit on Wednesday night — this weekend they’ll have the chance to end the regular season on a positive note.
