Boston Terriers

The Terriers managed to win just seven of their first 20 games this year. It’s been a sketchy 4-3 run since then with wins over Lafayette, Lehigh, Bucknell and Navy. The losses otherwise have come versus Holy Cross, Colgate and Army during that time.

Boston managed to get back into the win column versus Navy in their latest outing on Saturday. The Terriers were up 36-28 by the break and cruised to the 74-65 win with 38 second-half points. Boston U was led by Otto Landrum and Kyrone Alexander, each with 19 points.

American Eagles

Over on the Eagles’ side, they managed to go 11-9 over their first 20 outings. American is 3-4 in their last seven with wins over Lafayette, Bucknell and Navy. The Eagles lost otherwise to Colgate, Loyola MD, Holy Cross and Lafayette during that stretch of games.

In the home rematch versus Lafayette back on Saturday, American held a 27-26 deficit in the locker room. The Eagles were outpaced 41-36 in the second half in an eventual loss 68-62. Matt Rogers was the leading contributor on 17 points, seven rebounds and one assist.


I’ll stick with Boston U. Probably not touching this one, though. The Terriers are at least coming off a win, posting 47.2 percent shooting with 35 rebounds versus Navy. It was a nice bounce-back on offense after mustering just 50 points in the Army game, and Boston U has now hit 74 or more points in two of the last three.

As for the Eagles, they lost 72-68 in a road matchup the last time these teams met each other back on January 10. American just isn’t scoring well lately—they’ve been below 63 points in four straight outings. Provided Boston can find some offense in this rematch, I like the Terriers better on a cover. I’m staying away, however.
