Bombs away! That’s the approach working to perfection so far for the Boston University women’s basketball team. Not only are the first-place Terriers 7-0 in the Patriot League (12-6 overall), but they are also leading the nation in three-point shooting, sinking 122-294 long-range shots for a 42 percent clip.
The only other schools shooting three-pointers above 40 percent are Gonzaga, the University of Illinois, and Colorado State.
The women Terriers, under head coach Melissa Graves, are making 6.6 three-pointers per game, and they have had three games with 11 made. The players leading the barrage are Maggie Pina (CAS’22, MET’24) (32 made) and Sydney Johnson (CAS’23) (19 made), and Alex Giannaros (CAS’25) (16 made).
All those buckets pay off. When the team scores 65 points or more, they are a stellar 10-2.
