Georgetown 84, Boston College 60

March 4, 1995

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) _ Colleen Hanrahan hit three of her school-record six 3-pointers in a 30-5 first-half spurt that carried Georgetown to an 84-60 victory over Boston College in the first-round of the Big East Tournament Friday night.

The victory advanced the seventh-seeded Hoyas (11-16) into a quarterfinal game Saturday afternoon against second-seeded Villanova (18-8).

Boston College, which beat Georgetown 79-50 on Feb. 25, finished 6-21.

Daynia LaForce led Georgetown with 19 points, Hanrahan had 18 and Tricia Penderghast 13.

The six 3-pointers broke the record of five by Maria Ayers against Navy in the 1989-90 season. Hanrahan’s 16 3-point attempts broke the mark of 12 shared by six players.

Holly Porter had 17 for Boston College despite missing the final 12 minutes with a hip injury. Kim Beezer added 11.

Unlike a week ago, when the Eagles jumped out to a big first-half, Georgetown took control early with its big run that featured nine points by Hanrahan and six by LaForce.

Trailing 10-5, Georgetown took the lead for good at 11-10 on a free throw by Kacy Williams. After LaForce and Angela Crowder of Boston College exchanged baskets, Hanrahan, a third-team Big East selection, hit consecutive 3-pointers to push the lead to 19-12.

Porter got Boston College to within five points with a layup, but Georgetown scored the next 10 points and 15 of 16, taking a 35-15 lead on a layup by Penderghast with 4:49 left in the half.

The Hoyas led 47-27 at intermission and stretched the lead to 29 points in the opening six minutes of the second half.

Georgetown shot 44 percent for the game and forced 28 Eagles turnovers.
