Navy Team Preview

The Navy Midshipmen come into this game looking to build on their 64-48 first round win over Loyola-Maryland in their last matchup. Austin Benigni led the Midshipmen in scoring with 24 points on 7 of 15 shooting with a 10 of 10 mark from the foul line along with 3 assists while Donovan Draper had 16 points on 5 of 9 shooting with a team-high 11 rebounds and 3 assists for the double-double as the only other double-digit scorer for Navy in the winning effort.

Boston University Team Preview

The Boston University Terriers come into this game looking to advance to the semifinals as the 2-seed in the conference tournament, finishing the year 15-16 overall including 10-8 in conference play, ending the year with a five-game win streak after a 94-84 win over Holy Cross last time out. Miles Brewster leads the Terriers in scoring and assists with 10.9 PPG and 3.2 APG along with 3.8 RPG as the only double-digit scorer for Boston U up to this point in the year. Anthony Morales has 9.4 PPG with 4.1 RPG while Kyrone Alexander has 9.1 PPG with 4 RPG. Otto Landrum also has 8.7 PPG along with a team-high 5.4 RPG to lead the Terriers on the glass up to this point in the year. As a team, Boston University is averaging 65.9 PPG on 41.3% shooting from the field, 32.6% from three and 72.1% from the foul line this season.

Navy vs. Boston University Prediction

I’m leaning towards Boston U here. The Terriers have been red hot down the stretch, and while Navy had a chance to shake off the rust, they weren’t really tested by Loyola-Maryland. The home team won both meetings this season and I trust Boston U offensively to do enough to get the job done. Give me the Terriers laying the points.
