The status of Boston College big man Nik Popovic is still up in the air for the game against Dartmouth on Saturday. According to a source, Popovic still has not practiced this week and it is unclear if he will practice today.
Popovic took a vicious elbow in the Kansas State game last Friday which forced him out of that game and caused him to miss the game against Richmond. Popovic was sorely missed against Richmond as the Eagles had no answer to stop T.J. Cline once Mo Jeffers got into foul trouble.
Popvic is averaging 6 points per game and 3.2 rebounds per game in his first season.
