Richmond Spiders Preview

Richmond comes in at 2-0 after defeating Siena at home, 90-48. The Spiders used a late rally to come away with the victory, and they’ll look to show some fight here in Knoxville. UR is scoring 91.5 points per game, on 51.6% shooting, while allowing 66.5 ppg.

Richmond Player Notes

• ETSU transfer Jordan King asserted himself immediately with a 34-point outing in the in-state victory over VMI, and he leads UR in scoring early on with 22.0 ppg.

Boston College Eagles Preview

Boston College enters at 2-0 after defeating the Citadel in Charleston by four, 75-71.

Corey’s Free Pick

The other school in my hometown comes into an interesting spot as road underdogs here, as Richmond has looked dominant through two games, while Boston College nearly suffered a loss to the Citadel. Despite my ties, I do notice how light of a home margin this could wind up being for Boston College, and after nearly losing last time out, they should come out a bit sharper here. The Eagles played well in their home opener, so let’s look for a similar effort here against Richmond. I’m a VCU guy so this doesn’t feel like betrayal, and I like backing Boston College at home for this non-conference battle.
