Syracuse - Boston College Preview

 Syracuse students agree: Another must win, but also no one wants to lose to BC.
Syracuse heads to Chestnut Hill to take on the Eagles of Boston College. Stop me if you heard this one before, but this is a must win game. Syracuse was able to win in the Dome over BC 81 to 63, in their best offensive performance of the year up to that point. Syracuse will need a similar effort tonight in BC, a place where Syracuse didn't play very well last year on New Year's Day. Literally, one of the worst games SU had last year. And while BC isn't Pittsburgh, they still aren't the best team in the league. And Syracuse being on the bubble need wins. The good news is that Jim Christian, by all accounts, isn't a very good coach, so unless Syracuse can't make anything and BC bombing 3s, Syracuse is in a good position to win the game. Syracuse again needs to stop Jerome Robinson, Ky Bowman, and Jordan Chatman. If Syracuse is able to stop them, they will win the game. Syracuse again shot very well against BC in the Dome, and in the two previous games before the Duke abomination on Saturday. And let's face it, BC isn't going to have as good of a defense as Duke. Tyus Battle and Frank Howard had good games against BC last time, and while I think Frank Howard will have a good game, I think BC will make more of an effort to key in on Battle, which will give more opportunity for Brissett (who was virtually non-existent against Duke), Dolezaj, and even Chukwu the ability to get points in this game. I think this will go exactly like it did in the Dome. A tight game in the first half, with Syracuse breaking the game open with about 12 minutes to go in the 2nd half. I think Brissett gets hot, and makes up for the defense keying in on Battle again. I'm taking the Orange by 17. This game is available regionally at 9:00pm. For those, who can't watch on TV, WatchESPN. I'll be in the Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill (not Boston), for what will probably be another usual dismal showing from the BC Students. John will be in the Home Office. GO ORANGE! For Boston, for Boston...
