Preview

Boston College and Providence last met in 2019, and the Friars have won the last 3 meetings between the 2 teams after a 14 game BC winning streak between 1998 and 2016. The Friars are 2-1, with wins over Rhode Island and Bryant after a season-starting loss to Quinnipiac. Meanwhile, BC is undefeated at 2-0 after nearly blowing a lead against UMass on Sunday.

This is a winnable game for BC, but they’ll need to keep their stamina up better than they did on Sunday, when their lack of depth caused them to get tired and sloppy in the second period, allowing way too many turnovers. The Eagles should have a real edge on rebounds against the Friars between Taylor Soule, Clara Ford, and Makayla Dickens. Another key to BC’s success is to continue drawing fouls while not committing many of their own - the Eagles have a number of really strong free throw shooters, and they need to take advantage of that this season to pad their scoring in a less tiring way. The Eagles also seemed to finally be finding their footing on 3-pointers at the end of the UMass game, which would be a huge help moving forward,
