STORYLINES

  • BC earned a much needed win against a not great UMass team over the weekend. Can they earn another victory against a less terrible team?
  • UConn has been inconsistent this season, winning games against some tough teams and then losing lots of games they shouldn’t have lost. BC defeated UConn 5-2 earlier this season.
  • Colin White has been quiet after a terrific stint at World Juniors. Could this be the game that he returns to form?

FINAL THOUGHTS

  • This is BC’s game to lose. The Eagles should easily beat UConn if they are focused and play a clean game.
