ANDREW’S FREE COLORADO STATE VS BOSTON COLLEGE PREDICTION
I’ll probably stick with Boston College. The Eagles are coming off a solid win over a pretty darn good Harvard team in their last outing. Boston College was pestered into shooting a tepid 34.8 percent from the field in that one with 25 percent (6-of-24) from 3-point range. The Eagles were solid on the boards however, taking a 48-38 rebounding edge (18-8 offensive) and just nine turnovers.
As for Colorado State, they didn’t have too many issues versus UMKC, hitting 57.8 percent from the field with 10-of-22 (45.5 percent) from outside. The Rams weren’t spectacular from the line (22-of-31) and got out-rebounded 31-26, however. All things considered I don’t think Colorado State can keep a cover pace here if the Eagles are playing well.
