Boston College Vs. Miami: Struggling Eagles Try To Get Back On Track

Losers of their last three conference tilts, the Boston College Eagles (7-13, 2-4 ACC) host the Miami Hurricanes (11-7, 2-3 ACC) at 1:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA (TV/Radio: ACC Network (TV38)/WEEI).

What started out as promise has quickly returned to struggle, as many had expected. After the Boston College Eagles won two of their first three Atlantic Coast Conference games, the young squad had many thinking their rise to respectability in the ACC would not take as long as projected. But reality quickly set in, and the tough times have returned once more.

Losers of their last three conference tilts, the Eagles will host the Miami Hurricanes as they try to creep back to .500 in the ACC at 1:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday afternoon at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA (TV/Radio: ACC Network (TV38)/WEEI).

Boston College and Miami have met 37 times, with the Eagles holding a 24-13 advantage. BC is 8-6 against Miami since joining the ACC in the 2005-06 season and the Eagles won 13 straight games from 2000 through 2008. Last year, Miami won both games against the Eagles and have defeated BC five times in the last seven meetings.

The Eagles are coming off a 66-49 loss to the No. 21 ranked Virginia Cavaliers on Thursday. Ryan Anderson led BC with 12 points and 10 rebounds as the Eagles shot 40 percent from the field. Dennis Clifford had eight points and four boards.

Miami won its last game but has three of its last five. The Hurricanes defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 64-49, on Jan. 24. Kenny Kadji led the team with 21 points and eight rebounds as Miami shot 48.1 percent in the win. Malcolm Grant had 16 points and Reggie Johnson added eight points and seven rebounds for the Hurricanes.
