What to Know
The Boston College Eagles have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Fairfield Stags at 4 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Silvio O. Conte Forum. The Eagles will be strutting in after a victory while Fairfield will be stumbling in from a defeat.
BC was the big favorite in their most recent contest, and for good reason. Everything went their way against the Holy Cross Crusaders on Friday as they made off with an 85-55 win. Five players on BC scored in the double digits: 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 game against the Dartmouth Big Green on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Fairfield came up short against the Providence Friars on Tuesday, falling 80-73. Zach Crisler (14 points), Taj Benning (13 points), and Jake Wojcik (12 points) were the top scorers for Fairfield.
The Eagles’ victory brought them up to 2-0 while the Stags’ loss pulled them down to 0-1. A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: BC enters the matchup with a 42.20% field goal percentage, good for 33rd best in college basketball. Less enviably, Fairfield has allowed their opponents to shoot 51% from the floor on average, which is the 19th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
