Probable Starters:

  • G - Javier Gonzalez (Jr.) - 5'11", 175 lbs., Carolina, Puerto Rico - 10.2 PPG, 3.3 RPG
  • G - Farnold Degand (Sr.) - 6'4", 170 lbs., Boston, Ma. - 5.9 PPG, 2.5 RPG

Finally, after a roller coaster season, we've reached the end of the line - BC and NC State in the regular season finale. This game is for little more than bragging rights and momentum going into the ACC Tournament, as both the Eagles and the Wolfpack are locked into the number 8 and 11 seeds, respectively.
