After the collapse against Miami, I was a little nervous during the final minutes of the BC-Syracuse game. But BC made some foul shots, made some good decisions when breaking the press and didn't have huge defensive lapses in their win over the Orange.
Aside from the late game deja vu, the other point that got me nervous was when Syracuse started out four-for-six from 3. Fortunately they cooled off while BC was hot from outside (14-27). Bowman led BC with 23. Robinson 22 and was limited in minutes and aggressiveness due to foul trouble. Reyes started and struggled. Pop came off the bench and looked decent. There were times when BC really handled the 2-3 and other times when they couldn't hit open shots.
I am hoping for a win this weekend and a strong showing at the ACC tourney. We need some NIT momentum.
