Boston College Eagles (6-4, Kenpom #115) vs Albany Great Danes (2-7, Kenpom #321)
Monday, December 13, 2021 - 8 PM - ACC Network
Albany day! BC (-16, KenPom 115) should be able to get a dominant win tonight as they welcome the Albany Great Danes (KP 327) and try to get back on track after a tough loss to Saint Louis (KP 82) on the road pic.twitter.com/c0ErNcSPjo— Eagle Sports Analytics (@Eagle_Analytic) December 13, 2021
Should be another slow paced game, as they all are, but BC should be able to have their way with Albany on the defensive side of the ball. Albany is an extremely poor offensive team in all four factors, not ranking higher than 200 in any of them.
Same thing on the defensive side as the Great Danes are only in the top 200 in turnover forced rate and FTR allowed. Against a BC team that loves to attack the offensive boards, Albany could be outmatched and this one could get ugly fairly quickly.
Moving forward, I'm thinking of doing a deep dive into the team's players ahead of the game as @MizzouAnalytics has done in their game previews to see who Earl Grant might try to key on and who to watch out for for both teams, but I'm open to other suggestions as well!— Eagle Sports Analytics (@Eagle_Analytic) December 13, 2021
