Well. Last week was satisfying. Let’s see if this week will be as fun.

Stats y’all

Shooting Percentage: BC 10.0% (No. 26), Vermont 4.7% (No. 60)

PP/PK Split: BC 18.9%, 76.9%, Vermont: 0%, 81%

Average Age: BC 20.11, UConn 22.3

Breaking Down the Game

  1. Play a good offensive game: Vermont’s offense has been… lackluster. The power play and shooting percentage has been dead last this season. The BC defense should be able to handle Vermont. However, the Catamounts have been really solid on defense, so look for a low scoring game that is going to require a good offensive effort.
  2. Win possession: Vermont and BC are not separated by much in the Corsi For % rankings, so this game may be determined by possession.

GRaNT Prediction

3.14-1.39 BC
