Game Preview

The Cavaliers excel this season at forcing turnovers and turning them into scoring opportunities. A key for the Eagles will be avoiding some sloppy play with the ball that we have seen on and off this season. Virginia also excels when they are able to hold their opponents to a low amount of three-pointers, so some heroics behind the arc could help BC pull off an upset. After watching the close game they played against Duke, it is not completely out of the question that BC could find its first ACC win of the season against the defending (2019) champs.
