GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Taylor Soule scored 12 of her game-high 26 points in the last five minutes, almost single-handedly powering Boston College to a come-from-behind 14-0 run as the Eagles eliminated Duke 84-77 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Friday night.
The Eagles (20-11) were trailing 77-70 with 4:35 remaining when Soule scored on a jumper in the paint, then hit a step-back jumper and added a driving layup off a Duke turnover which she converted into a three-point play that knotted the game at 77-77 two minutes later.
BC kept going as Emma Guy scored on a putback for the lead and Soule finished with 5 of 6 free throws. Duke missed its last five shots, all 3-pointers, in the final 1:22.
Sixth-seeded BC meets 10th-ranked and No. 2 seed N.C. State in the semifinals on Saturday.
