The 3-9 Boston College Eagles face the 3-8 Notre Dame fighting Irish in South Bend Indiana. the game is at 4pm EST, and you can watch it on ACCN or the ESPN App. BC is trying to get their 2nd straight win and get there 2nd ACC win. While Notre Dame is looking for their first ACC win this season.
Boston college coming off a huge win vs Miami. They looked very good tying a school record by making 17 threes. Rich Kelly dropped 27 as well. The Eagles have been very competitive with the teams they have played but seems like they have not been able to close the door this season. We do not know if this issue is a coaching problem for the Eagles. This basketball team has the talent to stick and play with anyone in the ACC.
Notre Dame is very similar to Boston college and have played many tough games. They can not close them out. a player to watch for Notre Dame is Nate Laszewski a big who can stretch the floor , Laszewski has the length that Boston college defending in previous games. the junior has been a star for the Irish scoring 16.7 points, and 7.8 rebounds per game. He is a player that is a killer in the paint, shooting 63.4% from the floor. He scored a career high 28 points earlier this season vs UVA.
The Eagles must rebound well and shoot the ball somewhat decent. They are a team that struggles with turning the ball over in the past so limiting turnovers is very key in order for the eagles to win today. if they take care of the ball limit the mental mistakes the Eagles definitely will have a shot at winning this game. My prediction is for this to be a very low scoring game but a very close contest. The Eagles will come on top in South Bend 74-69.
