BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
The Eagles can’t afford a slow start on Saturday. They’ve gotten away with some lackluster first half defense that put them behind Maine and SHU early. They’ll have to come out crisper against Texas Tech. Also, watch the fouls on Popovic and Reyes. I like what I’ve seen from Kraljevic in his limited minutes, but it’s not a good sign if he has to play a big role in the early minutes.
