BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN

The Wednesday afternoon game against Colgate felt a lot like a trap and BC looked like they might fall right into it for the first 25 minutes. I think they’ll come ready for Providence from the tip- if not then they’ll be in trouble. That said, the big key on defense will be defending the 3s. The Eagles let Colgate take a lot of open shots from 3, and Providence has 5 players averaging better than 50% from 3 so far this season. If they let the Friars get hot from behind the arc, it will be difficult to keep pace.
