I know there is some BC sports fatigue out there right now, but we still have winter sports to play! Tonight the men's basketball team take on Wake Forest. Wake Forest enters the game undefeated and very good. They are good on both ends of the floor and better defensively than North Carolina. The team that beat the Heels can handle Wake. The team that lost to Harvard will get killed. Which team is the real BC?
The keys to victory are as follows:
-- Control the defensive boards. Like us, Wake lives off of offensive rebounds. It helps their efficiency and point totals. BC cannot allow second chance points.
-- Avoid foul trouble. The foul trouble in some games has hurt our rotation and sent our opponents to the line. Wake shoots 70% from the line.
-- Find good shots. The difference between Miami and Nort Carolina was shot selection. This team needs to work the possessions until they get the high percentage play.
Harvard was clearly a letdown. Miami was a hard fought game where BC did not execute well. Tonight is a true test. They can beat Wake but will need great performances and smart play.
