Big Game Against the Hokies

BC takes on VTech Saturday (1:00 PM, Ch. 38) in a critical ACC battle for sole possession of second place (both are 6-2 in conference play behind 6-1 UNC). This one doesn't need a lot of hype, it very well might be the biggest game on the Eagles' schedule to date. And I say the winner, barring a big collapse, is well on its way to an NCAA tourney bid. The loser? A tough row to hoe.

VTech has had some high profile wins, knocking off Duke and UNC the same week last month, but they stumbled badly the other night at home against ACC bottom feeder NC State. So BC could be catching the talented Hokies in a rut, or they could be on the business end of an angry team. I fear it'll be the latter, so the Eagles better bring their A game.

From the VTech perspective, here's a couple of game previews here and here, and a whiny review of the Hokies' loss to the Pack.
