Miami comes into the game with their highest ranking and probably their best team in eight years. Some are dismissing their fast start because they beat up some patsies. I am not. Not only did they beat a Providence team we lost to, but they also have solid wins over Miss St and VCU.
As for what the experts think...the game is a pick'em on the sports books. Kenpom has us as a slight favorite.
Two cents take on the game
I haven't seen Miami this year so take this for what it is worth. This squad is not big, yet they block a fair amount of shots and have good defense. The key for BC will be pushing the tempo. If the game is in the 70s, I think we win. In the high 50s, low 60s, we're in for a fight.

Is this a different Miami?
With most of our ACC basketball relationships still in their infancy, Miami is the closest thing we have to a history when it comes to ACC hoops. Due to the Big East relationship, we've played them nearly annually since 1992 and in many cases twice a season. BC has dominated the series. We are 21-8 all-time against Miami and 19-7 in conference play.
