After nearly pulling off a huge upset win over NC State last weekend, the Eagles face another tough foe in Syracuse. In competing with the Wolfpack, the Eagles showed that they have it in them to beat top teams...but they need to be able to keep up their stamina to avoid blowing leads. To win this one, BC will have to really focus on controlling their fouls - foul trouble really screwed them over against NC State, and will such a short roster the Eagles can’t afford to have even 1 player foul out, let alone multiple players. BC plays with more accuracy than Syracuse, so if the Eagles can stay consistent and keep fouls to a minimum, this is a winnable game. That accuracy will also be important since Syracuse is a strong defense team - the Eagles are going to have to make most of the shooting chances they get.
