Boston College Vs. Duke: Greetings From Silvio O. Conte Forum

CHESTNUT HILL - The time has come. Boston College and Duke will meet in the Eagles' biggest game of the season in less than two hours here inside Silvio O. Conte Forum.

I arrived at 3:00 p.m. EDT, and as expected, the arena was silent. Even now there are only a few people spread throughout the building. It's the calm before the storm. Players from either team haven't ventured out onto the court, but Ryan Anderson was the first player seen this afternoon walking around the stadium.

The Eagles have played several very close games against the Blue Devils in recent history here at Conte Forum. Still, Duke owns a 9-1 record in games played in Chestnut Hill since the 2005-06 season, when the Eagles joined the ACC. In the last three home losses, the Eagles have lost by an average of 4.3 points. An upset is unlikely, but anything is possible.
