Players to Watch

As BC starts to slowly make way into the more difficult section of the schedule, it will be important to see if the Langford brothers can keep up their scoring. They’ve been BC’s leaders across the court so far, and the team’s success will depend on their success.

Prediction

I think BC wins this one, although probably not by 30 points like they did against Holy Cross haha. Maybe BC 73, Rhode Island 65?
