Boston University Terriers Preview

Boston U moved to 9-15 after losing to Colgate at home, 74-64. The Terriers served as a little threat to the conference-leading Raiders, and they’ll attempt to trade a six straight game here in Lewisburg. Boston U is scoring 64.0 points per game, on 40.1% shooting, while allowing 65.3 ppg, and they’re currently 5th in the Patriot League with a 4-7 record in conference play. 

Boston U’s Impact Players 

  • Brooklyn native Miles Brewster went for a game-high 21 points in the Colgate matchup, and he leads Boston U in scoring (10.4) and assists (3.2).   
  • Sophomore forward Otto Landrum came thru with a season-best 26 points in the Lafayette victory, and he leads the Terriers in rebounding (6.0), while scoring 8.5 ppg.

Bucknell Bison Preview

Bucknell moved to 10-14 after defeating Navy in Annapolis, 80-67. The Bison controlled both halves to sink the Midshipmen, and they’ll look to bring the brooms out on Boston this weekend. Bucknell is scoring 66.3 points per game, on 43.8% shooting, while allowing 71.5 ppg, and they’re currently 4th in the Patriot League with a 7-4 record in conference play. 

Bucknell’s Impact Players 

  • Senior guard Jack Forrest scored 18 points in both DMV matchups with American and Navy,  and he leads Bucknell in scoring (16.7), while grabbing 5.3 rpg. 
  • Sophomore center Noah Williamson went for a season-high 28 points in the win over Loyola (MD), and he leads the Bison in boards (6.3), while scoring 12.9 ppg. 
  • Hopewell native Elvin Edmonds IV recorded a career-best 12 dimes versus the Midshipmen and he leads the team in assists (4.7), while scoring 10.4 ppg. 

Boston U vs Bucknell Trends

  • BU is 8-15 against the spread, with a 9-14 over/under record
  • The Raiders are 4-6 over their last ten games, and they’re 4-9 on the road this season. 
  • BUCK is 13-10-1 against the spread, with a 11-13 O/U record
  • The Bison are 6-4 over their previous ten games, and they’re 4-6 in Lewisburg this season. 

Boston U vs Bucknell Prediction

Bucknell naturally struggled during the first portion of the season, but they’ve hit their stride here in league play and I believe that continues here against an offensively-challenged Boston U team. The Terriers can defend, but they’re very limited on the other side of the ball, and that could get them in trouble against a hot Bison squad. Bucknell will again come in with the two best players on the floor in Jack Forrest and Noah Williamson, and there’s little reason to look away from them here against Boston U at home.
