would be another quality road win on our resume.

Yup, and Florida beat Texas A&M pretty convincingly last night (17 points on the road), certainly boosts our resume as well.

and Nebraska. We've beaten them 5 straight times. 15 - 7 overall against them. They beat Duke in a snowstorm, but made 15 of 26 threes while Duke shot 8 of 20 to do it.

Should be a comfortable win.

tradionally good bball team that plays tough defense. The nebraska lost is a little bit of a head scratcher but BC has been a nice surprise this year

BC is 141st in the nation in scoring. The make 8 threes a game, but they made 15 against Duke.

Inconsistent at best.

When you look at the schedule, these are the kinds of ACC teams we need to beat to get to the tournament.

UVA doesn't light up the scoreboard, either, but I don't see anyone denigrating them. Oh...and Texas Tech drilled Kansas last night...in Lawrence. BC's a solid team...very solid.


These are the teams we must learn to beat if we want to

make the tournament. They were picked near the bottom of the ACC. Their coach is only in his 3rd year. If they are a surprise team in the ACC and we can't beat them, then we need to find some other games on the schedule we can put in the win column.

They hired a good coach and gave him a long contact. He took a lot of lumps early with young guys and are now much improved and building. We need this game and it is winnable for us but expect nothing short of a complete grind.

Those that spout things like “comfortable win” I don’t think have an understanding of game prep for BC. “It ain’t easy.”

Honestly it seems like you’re just trying to give yourself an avenue to complain if we were to lose.

Talking about how easy the game should be when it’s clearly not. Our guys are traveling 2000 miles to play a 10-4 team that torched Duke. That’s tough. If we win, it’ll be an outstanding win.

Well, maybe they're travelling 2,000 miles round trip, but Boston isn't 2,000 miles from Clemson.

That being said, it will be a tough game to win as it's a road game in the ACC and none of those are gimmes.

Beat Duke, just lost by 1 at UVA this past weekend.

Losses are to mostly good teams, including Texas Tech who won at Kansas last night.


They actually had snow on the court? I guess that


Posted: Jan 3, 2018 10:30 AM
 

explains how Duke lost. Hope the snow holds off tonight - hear that a blizzard is on the way up there.

The lit up possibly the best team in the country. They’re 10-4. And you think it’ll be a comfortable win?

Do you watch much ACC basketball?


Re: They are? 4 losses already including Texas Tech, Providence

Not to mention that they're undefeated at home and have one of the best, if not THE best, backcourt in the conference. Good guards can change any game.

Is the game on TV? Didn’t see it on the espn app list.
