WORCESTER - Fresh off a season opening win over UNH, the Boston College Eagles will look for their second win of the season as they take on an in-state foe, the Holy Cross Crusaders, at 7 p.m. EDT on Friday night at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA (Radio: WEEI 93.7 FM/850 AM/1440 AM).
Boston College (1-0) was able to survive a scare against a pesky New Hampshire Wildcats team that scored 41 points in the second half to cut the Eagles' lead to three points, but BC held on for the 67-64 win. Patrick Heckmann was impressive for BC in its opener, scoring 19 points and grabbing eight rebounds in his first career college game.
Holy Cross (0-2) has had a rough start to the new season, losing its first two games against the Charleston Cougars and the Harvard Crimson. In their last game, the Crusaders fell short against the Crimson, losing 73-64, on Tuesday. Devin Brown led the Crusaders with 17 points, but had seven turnovers in the loss. Holy Cross totaled 21 turnovers in the loss.
Boston College returns home to host the Massachusetts Minutemen after Friday's game.
