Preview: Boston College Men’s Basketball vs. Harvard

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament First Round - Boston College vs Louisville Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College looks to stay undefeated as they take on Harvard at home on Saturday evening.

Who: Harvard Crimson (3-0) vs. Boston College Eagles (3-0)

When: Saturday, November 18th at 7 pm

Where: Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, MA

How to Watch: The game will be broadcast on ACCNX/ESPN+

The Harvard Crimson comes to Conte Forum straight from Amherst as they play the MinuteMen tonight. The Crimson started their season with three rather dominant wins. UMass-Boston, Rice, and Northeastern aren’t the best teams in the country, but wins are wins. The Crimson were 14-14 last year and lost their two leading scorers, so they weren’t expecting much coming into this season. However, two bright-spots for Harvard have been Malik Mack and Chisom Okpara. Mack, a 3-star recruit from Washington, D.C., has started his college career off well averaging 18 points per game. The matchup between Jaeden Zackery and Malik Mack will be one to watch. I’m intrigued to see how Mack handles Zackery, as JZ is one of the best defensive guards in the ACC. Another matchup to watch will be Okpara on the inside against Quinten Post. Okpara is averaging 15.5 points per game, thus far, and won Ivy League Freshman of the week 4 times last year. QP should handle business on the interior, but Okpara will give him something to think about. Zackery will look to bounce back from a poor offensive performance against Richmond and help Post and company earn their fourth win.

Prediction: Boston College 82 — Harvard 65
