Headlines: Robert Morris Loss

Brian: Jeff, Boston College loses to Robert Morris last night, 57-51. (Here is the ATLEagle recap). So after a lackluster performance against Kansas and coming out flat to Robert Morris, both at home, is this team in free-fall mode, or can they right the ship when ACC play starts this Saturday at home vs. Wake Forest?

Jeff: Playing Robert Morris just 2 days after playing a national power like Kansas in front of a large crowd had danger written all over it. Of course all BC fans were hoping talent would prevail and BC would pull off a win any way they could get it. Unfortunately, no such luck. This loss at home will severely damage our chances of making the dance. Now an 8-8 conference record is almost certainly not enough and 9-7 seems like it would be a dream at this point. However, With four good days of practice before the Wake Forest game and I expect the team to be ready on Saturday to get back into conference play.

Brian: We didn't practice in between games which might have been a mistake. Al will have the team ready for Wake Forest. We are in trouble in the paint and need to improve on the defensive side of the ball if we are looking at 9-7 in conference. Otherwise, we will be looking at the four letter word NIT this year. Also, 20 turnovers for the Eagles last night. You aren't going to win a game with 20 turnovers, even when the opposing team shoots 36.8 percent from the field. A pretty ugly loss for this young team.
