Where: Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, MA
The Opponent: The Hokies head up to Boston on Saturday to take on a Boston College team in desperate need of a victory. The Eagles have lost three games in a row by an average of 21 points to Florida State, Duke, and North Carolina. BC gave up 106 to UNC on Tuesday in a 32-point defeat.
Despite their recent slump, the Eagles are still 41st in the RPI as of Friday night. That high mark comes despite home losses to Yale (by eight) and Harvard (by nine). BC’s recent problem has been defense, as they’re giving up 76.5 ppg in ACC contests, which is the second worst in the conference. The Eagles also allow opponents to shoot over 48 percent in conference games, the highest among the 12 ACC schools.
Here’s a look at their projected starting lineup:
