Road Warriors- Deacs Topple Eagles 92-87 in Double OT

Lakevia Boykin led all scorers Sunday, en route to a 92-87 double OT win over BC - Dana Warren- DEWshots.com

The Wake Forest women's basketball team came from nine down in the second half to defeat the BC Eagles 92-87 Sunday at Conte Forum.

Lakevia Boykin dropped 27 points en route to the Deacs' gutty 92-87 double overtime win over Boston College on Sunday. Boykin was 4-8 from the three-point line and 7-8 from the foul line to lead a starting rotation who all scored in double figures. Chelsea Douglas (21 points) was also lethal from three, going 5-8 from long distance. Asia Williams, the target of some criticism for lackluster play against Duke and Clemson, finished with 15 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists on the afternoon.

In a second half marked by runs from each team, Boston College seemingly had the game in hand, leading by 9 with 10:53 remaining. However, Wake Forest kept chipping away until Boykin found Sandra Garcia wide open under the basket with 1 second remaining, sending the game to overtime.

The two teams exchanged the lead for most of the first overtime, culminating in a Kristen Doherty layup to tie the contest at 78 with 12 seconds left. After a Jen Hoover timeout with three seconds remaining, the Deacs had to settle for a wild, contested 3-point attempt by Chelsea Douglas.

The Deacons finally took some measure of control with 2:30 remaining in the second overtime, and protected the lead until the end when Asia Williams was sent to the line up 3 points with 8 seconds remaining. Williams, a 54% foul shooter coming into Sunday's game, drained both to seal the 92-87 win for Wake Forest.

Boston College (8-9, 2-4 ACC) was lead by Kristen Doherty's 21 points and 9 assists, and Katie Zenevitch's 17 points and 7 rebounds. Wake Forest (10-8, 3-3 ACC) won the game despite 55% shooting from the Eagles. The Deacs won the rebounding battle 30-26, with half of that total provided by Williams and Garcia.

Next up for the Deacs is a home date with Miami, losers of three of their last four, on Thursday at LJVM. A win would put Wake Forest in good position in the conference as they enter a favorable part of what has been a rough schedule to date. Tip-off is at 6:30 and parking is free.
