Boston College is now 2-1 on the season, while handing BYU its first loss of the season (2-1).
Junior Tessah Holt added 15 points, while Nicole Boudreau had 11.
The tide turned for Boston College when Doherty hit a three-pointer with 11 minutes to play in the game. The long range jumper broke a 37-37 tie. BC extended the lead to nine points, 50-41, with six minutes to play behind six points from Zenevitch sandwiched with a Doherty jumper and a Holt layup.Seminoles Fly Past Gators, 98-67

The Garnet and Gold used a 28-2 run over the last eight minutes of the first half to blow out their interstate rivals and avenge a 14-point loss in Gainesville last season. It was Florida State's biggest win over Florida since a 42-point (90-48) victory in 1980, and the second-biggest win in the history of the 74-game series that dates back to 1973.
Senior Leonor Rodriguez scored a career high 21 points and made four steals to lead four Seminoles in double figures. The Canary Islands, Spain, native made 9-of-14 field goals (both career highs), including 3-of-4 from behind the arc.
