BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
To put it quite bluntly, this should be a pretty easy win for the Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles have really favored shooting from beyond the arc this season, and if there is anything the last two games have shown us is that it is working effectively. If Chatman, Bowman, and Robinson get hot early from three, this game very well could be over by halftime. The one area that BC did not succeed at against Columbia early on was offensive rebounding. In the first half, BC did not register a single offensive board which actually kept things really close against the Lions in the first half. If BC can combine solid three point shooting with controlling the offensive glass, they should get their fourth win in a row with ease.
