The Boston College Eagles improved to 8-21, 4-12 ACC after beating Wake Forest on the road 80-72 on Saturday. On the season, Olivier Hanlan leads the Eagles with 18 points per game. Ryan Anderson is averaging 14.3 points per game while pulling down a team-high 7.3 rebounds per contest. Boston College is averaging 68.5 points per game while shooting 44.5% from the field as a team this season. The Eagles are one of the worst rebounding teams in the country, pulling down only 30 boards per game. Boston College earned only their eighth win of the season on Saturday and only their fourth against conference opponents. The Eagles will be at home for senior night on Tuesday; Boston College has lost four of their last five at home against conference opponents.
Florida State has played decent on the road this year and they need this win much more than Boston College at this point in the season. The Eagles would like nothing more but to send their seniors out with a big home win. I think Boston College will hang around early, but the Seminoles will get the win on the road in the end.
