NCAA Basketball: ACC/A10- Fordham vs Boston College Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Well, BC has a little bit of a streak going. They’ll put that streak to the test today at the Barclays Center in the first round of the Barclays Center against Kansas State.

How Did BC Do Last Time Out?

FINAL: Boston College Basketball Downs Towson, 80-70

How Did K-State Do Last Time Out?

K-State takes down Robert Morris, 61-40

Things to Look Out For With K-State:

Eric Hoffses did a great preview breaking down the x’s-and-o’s of the matchup. I highly suggest clicking here to read it. Just a couple of things that I noticed:

  1. K-State, albeit in not-so-difficult matchups, have had four players with an average of 10 points or more per game. Hoffses mentions Xavier Sneed as K-State’s sixth man, who is averaging 10.5 ppg.
  2. K-State is 55th in adjusted offense efficiency and 29th in adjusted defensive efficiency according to Kenpom.com. Based on these two statistics, K-State will be the best team BC has faced all year.

Random, Possibly Incorrect Fact from K-State Wikipedia Page

K-State was founded the same year BC was, 1863.
