What to Know
The Boston College Eagles will play host again and welcome the Fairfield Stags to Silvio O. Conte Forum, where tip-off is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET Sunday. The Eagles will be strutting in after a victory while Fairfield will be stumbling in from a defeat.
BC made easy work of the Holy Cross Crusaders this past Friday and carried off an 85-55 win. BC got double-digit scores from five players: guard DeMarr Langford Jr. (20), forward T.J. Bickerstaff (15), guard Jaeden Zackery (13), guard Makai Ashton-Langford (12), and forward Quinten Post (10). Jaeden Zackery's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Dartmouth Big Green last week.
Meanwhile, Fairfield came up short against the Providence Friars last Tuesday, falling 80-73. The top scorers for Fairfield were Zach Crisler (14 points), Taj Benning (13 points), and Jake Wojcik (12 points).
The Eagles are the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
BC is now a perfect 2-0 while the Stags sit at 0-1. A pair of last-season stats to keep an eye on: BC ranks 24th in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 42.20% on the season. Less enviably, Fairfield has allowed their opponents to shoot 51% from the floor on average, which is the 10th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Fairfield.
