Solid win. 1 more possible W before ACC play. Could we go 6-10 in conference play or is that wishful thinking?

At points during this game, I was wondering if they might go 0-18 again. 6 wins seems optimistic, but I think they miss Chatman more than I thought they would.

Id rather he leaves.


After driving into a double-team in the corner late, and then throwing the ball up for grabs towards the half-court, I can't say that you're wrong.

He’s doing a lot of defense for show 40 feet out on the perimeter but is getting abused close to the hoop and off the ball. He’s too good of an athlete for this. Effort or focus issue.


His turnover issues just kill this team at PG


Yup. Lots of bad decisions. The lack of a real pg has been a problem for years

We didn't play well, but I've watched BC lose that game for 10 years in a row now, so I'll take the win.

Dickey Simpkins had numerous Golden Eagles mentions. I would give him credit for trolling, but I don't think he actually knows the correct mascot.

He makes just horrific decisions most the times.

He’s played awful this year making me wonder if he’s hurt

He didn’t look hurt today. He was getting a lot of double teams today. Think he is missing Robinson and the attention he got from opponents.

I do not know if someone or lots of people tweeted at him, direct messaged, BC media person said something or a BC grad working the telecast told him but he eventually apologized.

+5 Matt. BC loses this game at anytime over the last 5 years. They get it done. Merry Christmas

I don't think 6 is too much to ask. Maybe they win 8?

I think the 6-8 range is likely.

Hoping for more, but a lot depends on health...Chatman and Mitchell need to be full strength. If not, we're back to the same old treadmill that we're on year after year (last year with the Hawkins injury)...we just can't bring in AND develop AND retain enough talent to win consistently in the ACC.

Somebody mentioned NCAAs above...gonna be tough with the Providence loss, and we missed a chance for a road win at a very beatable Texas A&M team.

If we went 20-13 before Selection Sunday, would we be in the tournament or in the NIT again? i think it'll be difficult for us to get more than 16 wins total going into the conf tourney, since we only have Pop/Mitchell/HamiltonTheYounger in the frontcourt. i think our back court is set, we're ~5 guards deep: Ky Tabbs n' Chatman to start with HamiltonTheOlder and Herren off the bench? Means no more VBJ.

Not-In-Tournament

The ACC has had teams win 22 and have been stuck in the NIT. It doesn't happen very often (maybe only once or twice) but it has happened. 20 wins? Meh. Not likely to get into March Madness with that Resume.

They have to finish 10-2 OOC and go (minimum) 8-8 in conf and win at least 3 in the ACC tourney or they can probably forget it.

Correct. Last year ND (21-15) and Louisville (22-14) were both in the NIT.

ACC pecking order probably matters as much as anything...need to beat the teams around you on the bubble since I don't think the ACC gets more than 9 bids.

Agree that .500 in conference (9-9) prob gets them in, maybe with just 2 tourney wins (would skip the first round, have to make the semifinal). Just sucks that a game like Providence could be the difference where the margins are razor thin.
