The Boston College Eagles (2-3, 0-0 ACC) will be returning to Conte Forum to take on the Bryant University Bulldogs (2-2) on Nov. 25 at 2:00 PM. The Eagles are coming off of a close win against the Auburn Tigers, securing a 50-49 victory and snapping a three-game losing streak in their final game of the Charleston Classic.
The Eagles will be looking to build off their solid performance against Auburn where their defense was much improved and their offense found opportunities to score when it mattered most.
BC was able to overcome an unusually poor performance from Ryan Anderson by finding new sources of offense; the Eagles offense looked primarily to Olivier Hanlan and Joe Rahon for scoring and the freshmen came through big time with 19 points and 15 points, respectively.
The Eagles will need to continue utilizing their second and third scoring options in order to find success against their future opponents, starting with Bryant. Look for Coach Donahue to try and get his young freshmen involved early and often against Bryant, as this will be a great opportunity to get his young players acclimated with his system before the tough ACC schedule begins.
