BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
The Eagles should be able to handle their America East opponent if they take advantage of the superior backcourt talent they have in Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman. Teddy Hawkins, Nik Popovic, and freshman Steffon Mitchell need to dominate the glass against the smaller Maine squad.
BC and Maine last met in December 2015, with the Eagles coming away with the 91-60 victory.
