CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman Nicole Boudreau scored a game-high 18 points going 4-of-5 on 3-pointers, but Boston College fell to No. 22/24 Florida State, 67-57, on Thursday night in Conte Forum.

The Eagles (8-8, 2-3 ACC) cut the Seminoles (14-3, 4-2 ACC) lead to three, 50-47, with just over eight minutes left and to four, 59-55, with 1:54 remaining but could not take the lead.

Junior Kristen Doherty netted 12 points to go with nine rebounds while classmate Katie Zenevitch recorded 10 points. Boudreau finished the night 6-of-10 from the field.

After the Eagles opened the game with a layup from Zenevitch and a three from Boudreau, the Seminoles scored nine straight points to take a 9-5 lead just over five minutes into the contest. Doherty broke the run with a layup before Boudreau made another 3-pointer to claim a 12-11 lead for BC at the 12:33 mark.

A four-point play from FSU's Alexa Deluzio started an 8-2 Seminole run that gave the visitors a 19-14 edge with 9:29 left in the half. Baskets from senior Kerri Shields and junior Tessah Holt cut Florida State's lead to one, 19-18, but the Seminoles responded with a 10-2 spurt to capture a 29-20 advantage with five minutes remaining in the half. FSU carried a 39-29 lead into the break.

FSU opened the second half with a 3-point play from Morgan Toles before the Eagles scored six unanswered points - including another three from Boudreau - to cut the Seminoles' lead to 42-35 just over three minutes into the period. Florida State countered with six straight points to stake a 48-35 edge just over six minutes into the half.

BC then used a 12-2 run to trim FSU's margin to three, 50-47, with 8:08 left in the game. During the run, Doherty scored seven points, and Boudreau had five points. Down the stretch, a deep two-point jumper from Shields cut Florida State's lead to 59-55 with 1:54 remaining, but the Seminoles scored eight of the game's last 10 points to seal the win.

Florida State notched four scorers in double-figures - Chasity Clayton (14), Leonor Rodriguez (13), Deluzio (12), and Natasha Howard (10).
