Tonight we have a critical game for our season, a must-win game. We will be taking on the Retrievers of UMBC at the Roof, and it's not going to be easy.
They average around 72 points a game, most in our conference, and we average around 62 points a game, least in our conference. Hodges, Barbosa, Proctor, and Johnson average 17.4, 15.7, 14.8, and 12.8, respectively.
But 4 of their 5 starters average well over 30 minutes a game, and you've got to think that they'll start to wear down. If not now, then at least by early March.
I wouldn't be surprised if we lost to UMBC in Maryland, but we need to beat them at home. Our record will take a serious blow, and we don't want to be 2-4 when we face Vermont on Friday.
Let's hope Corey is back in action tonight, Tyler plays as well as he did against Stony Brook, and we play tight defense on their big scorers. If we can do that, maybe we can pull this off.
Prediction: BU 69 - UMBC 66
