What to Know
The Holy Cross Crusaders and the Boston University Terriers will face off in a Patriot clash at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 1 at Case Gym. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Crusaders winning the first 75-70 on the road and Boston University taking the second 78-65.

Holy Cross is expected to lose this next one by 7. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
The Crusaders are now 7-16 while the Terriers sit at 10-13. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Holy Cross is 24th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 65.6 on average. Boston University has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.70% percent of their shots, which is the 12th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
