Injuries are in fact our issue right now. Watching the game you would see that first Tera and Taya (our leading scorers from the past 2 seasons) have yet to play together. You would also note that Olga has not played a game this season so far (a consistent 3 point shooter and good on ball defender). So while yes these losses do not look good on paper, these are not just bottom of the barrel teams, these are contenders for their respective conference as well as teams that are in similar situation as us (BC brought the bulk of their squad from last season) and everyone knows that our success last season came from how deep our bench was as well as the chemistry. Currently with injuries, we are not able to benefit from either of these. Once we get past the bump and bruises and actually get a couple practices where the whole team is participating, I am sure we will get back on track.
I know injuries have certainly been a factor. I've heard other things as well. That not withstanding, no one expects a 35 point blow-out by Boston College especially after the SH debacle. BC is 4-2 and was handled easily by Holy Cross and Providence. A veteran team even with some injury issues should at least be competitive. With the way we shoot the ball allowing 87 points against an unranked team won't work. TO's and assists also needs serious work. BC had 24 dimes, we had 6 I believe.
