BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN

The Eagles’ loss against North Carolina showed every glaring weaknesses this team has, especially with regards to size. Fortunately BC can try bounce back against a Dartmouth team that has underwhelmed thus far. Jim Christian and co have been able to beat the teams they were supposed to so far this year and will simply need to do the same again here. Once again, expect BC to rely on superior athleticism to attack the rim and defend against the Big Green. I’d expect it to be close for the start of the first half before BC puts on the jets and pulls away (as the Eagles have been doing all year against inferior competition).
