Boston College Eagles
11-1 (0-0 ACC)
#53 in the RPI rankings
6-game winning streak


Virginia Tech Hokies
12-1 (0-0 ACC)
#68 in the RPI rankings
Undefeated at home this season

Storyline: After their best nonconference performance in years, hopes and expectations have ratcheted up for the BC women's basketball team. How good can they be this season? We won't know for sure until we see them run through the ACC gauntlet. That gauntlet starts this afternoon in Blacksburg where the Eagles will tip off ACC play against the Hokies. Like BC, VT had a very good run through nonconference play and will be looking to this as a winnable game on their path to a possible NCAA tournament bid. Among the Hokies accomplishments so far this season is knocking off perennial power Tennessee back on December 6.

With games this week at VT and FSU, BC will surely be hoping to come home with at least one victory to get the ACC season off on the right foot.

Place: Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg, Va.
