Boston College hasn't yet come close to winning a game against a Pomeroy ranked top-100 team this season. They get another chance against Harvard. One thing interesting about Harvard, they are #1 in the nation at FT Rate at 60%. They get to the line a lot and they make 75% of their free throws. Boston College has to be the smarter team, which is even more difficult considering you're playing Harvard. The Eagles can win this one, look for a close game.
There was a time when Harvard was just a footnote on the college basketball scene in Boston, which usually was spearheaded by Boston College. That scenario has been turned upside down in recent years. The Crimson look to maintain their recent dominance of the Eagles when the teams meet Tuesday in Chestnut Hill. Tommy Amaker's bunch has won four straight against Boston College, including a 23-point rout at Conte Forum last season. The Eagles captured 31 of the first 40 meetings between the teams. Harvard is coming off a 73-64 win over Fordham. BC knocked off Penn State in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge on Friday.
