Miami at Boston College

Miami Boston College

1/16/2013 7:00:00 PM |  TV:RSN | LIVE STATS

To this point, the Boston College Eagles basketball team has managed nine wins, three better than at this point last season. Nevertheless, as they continue their rebuild which started last season, they’re not playing for much of anything aside from (1) pride and (2) practice with the goal of improvement. The ACC schedule has so far featured three games for the Eagles, one of which was a relatively comfortable win, and the other two were games that BC had realistic chances of winning in the second halves but did not.

When the Miami Hurricanes come to town tonight to face Boston College, the Eagles are going to face a better class of conference opponent. Who knows how many people would have considered them to be as such given that Reggie Johnson is out with an injury, but the Hurricanes have continued to roll in spite of their big man’s absence. Media “bracketology” segments would put them at about a 6-seed in the NCAA Tournament as of now, and why not? They’re 12-3 (3-0) without one of their star players, and despite two bad losses to Florida Gulf Coast and Indiana State, Miami has acquitted itself well. Not to mention, two of those three ACC wins were on the road.

Miami Opens ACC with 3-of-4 on the Road
The Hurricanes are one of two league schools (also FSU) to start ACC play with three-of-four games on the road. Miami opened with wins at Georgia Tech, then at North Carolina, hosted Maryland,  now hits the road for Boston College. Of the other 10 ACC schools, seven are split 2-2 home and away, while the other three (Clemson, Duke and Maryland) only hit the road once in their first four outings. For the third-straight season, UM opened the ACC schedule with back-to-back games on the road. In 2011, Miami lost at Duke and Clemson, then in 2012 the Canes lost at both Virginia and UNC to start league play. This season Miami is already 1-0 with a win at Georgia Tech on Jan. 5. 
 
Gamble Steps Up in Absence of Johnson
Julian Gamble has moved into the starting lineup in the absence of Reggie Johnson and is taking full advantage of the opportunity. Gamble has more than doubled his point production and increased his rebounds from less than two per game to 7.9 each night in the past seven games without Reggie Johnson. A year ago, he didn’t know if he’d be granted a sixth year of eligibility with the Canes. In his senior campaign, the native of Durham is posting career numbers, topping his junior year stats.
