Boston College Vs. Miami: Eagles Close Out Regular Season Against Miami

The Boston College Eagles (9-20, 4-11 ACC) look to close out the regular season on a win streak as they face the Miami Hurricanes (17-11, 8-7 ACC) at 2:30 p.m. ET. at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. (TV:Radio: ESPN3/WEEI)

After winning their home finale against Georgia Tech, the Boston College Eagles men's basketball team will close out their regular season schedule on Saturday as they will travel to South Florida to take on the Miami Hurricanes at BankUnited Center.

The two met earlier in the year on January 29 as the Hurricanes defeated the Eagles, 76-54.

This season has been a relatively forgetful one for the Eagles (9-20, 4-11 ACC) and their fanbase. For one, the Eagles and coach Steve Donahue have a young core of players that are in their first full season of playing together.

Freshman forward Ryan Anderson has emerged as the most consistent player on the team as he's averaging 11.0 points per game and a little over seven boards a game. Anderson had just nine points against Miami back on Jan. 29 matchup at Conte Forum.

Matt Humphery was the high scorer for BC in their last game against Miami earlier in the year with 13 points.

For the Hurricanes (17-11, 8-7 ACC), they've been able to rely on a plethora of scorers from around the floor. Miami features Durand Scott, whose averaging 13.0 points per game this season as well as Kenny Kadji, who's averaging 12.8 points from the floor. Scott scored 19 in the two team's earlier matchup while Kadji had 14.

Sophomore guard Rion Brown was the top performer for the Canes last time out with 15 points in their 77-73 loss to the North Carolina State Wolfpack. The Canes will also be getting center Reggie Johnson back on Saturday, as he was reinstated by the NCAA earlier this week. Johnson scored 12 and had five boards against the Eagles

For the Eagles, a win today would be significant in terms of ACC tournament implications. A win over Miami would put them at 5-11 in the ACC, which could lock them in as potentially the No. 9 seed in next week's tournament. A BC win and a Wake Forest and Virginia Tech loss would put the Eagles as the number nine seed in the tourney. However, if they lose today, BC could be as low as the No. 11 seed in the tournament.
