He's a Dude: Jahlil Okafor, freshman center. Not sure what's left to be said about Duke's star freshman center from Chicago. The 6-foot-11 center has been an absolute force for the Blue Devils this season. He's averaging 18.8 points and 8.8 rebounds a game through 12 games so far this season. He's already topped the 20-point mark in five separate games and has scored a combined 51 points over the last two games (wins over Toledo and Wofford).

Fun Fact: This will be the first true road game for BC this season. The Eagles have played four neutral site games and went 1-3 in those contests.

(Not So) Fun Fact: Boston College has never won at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
