The first-year starter was key in providing Shemanova and fellow outside hitter Ella Saada easy opportunities for kills. Syracuse kept scoring runs alive by capitalizing off Boston College attacking errors. But back-to-back kills from Golden Eagle outside hitters Cat Balido and Carly Kutschke tied the set at 20. Then, a slew of errors from Syracuse gave Boston College a set point, and the Golden Eagles took the set, 25-23 on a hiy from Karakasi that was blocked by Amaka Chukwujekwu.The Orange dominated Boston College for the early part of the second set.
