The Boston University Terriers and the Navy Midshipmen will meet in the second round of the Patriot League Championship this Thursday from the Case Gym on ESPN +. Boston U comes in as 4-point home favorites, with the total sitting at 133. Stay tuned for our Navy vs Boston U Prediction. 

Navy Midshipmen Rundown

Navy moved to 13-17 after defeating Loyola (MD) in Annapolis, 64-48. The Midshipmen cruised to a fifth-straight victory over the in-state Greyhounds, and they’ll attempt to keep rolling here in Boston. Navy is scoring 66.7 points per game, on 39.4% shooting, while allowing 65.1 ppg, and they’re currently 7th in the Patriot League with a 8-10 record in conference play. 

Navy’s X-Factors

  • Sophomore guard Austin Benigni went for a team-high 20 points in the win over Holy Cross,  and he leads the Midshipmen in scoring (16.5) and assists (3.7).
  • Second-year forward Donovan Draper posted a 14-point double-double in the Loyola victory, and he leads the Midshipmen in rebounding (9.2), while averaging an identical 9.1 ppg.
  • Richmond native Mac MacDonald scored 16 points in the January 31st matchup with Loyola, and he’s third on the team at 8.6 ppg.  

Boston University Terriers Preview

Boston U closed at 16-15 after defeating Holy Cross, 94-84. The Terriers also pinned a regional win to tack on a fifth straight victory, and they’ll look to keep their season alive here against the Midshipmen. Boston U is scoring 64.0 points per game, on 40.3% shooting, while allowing 65.3 ppg, and they’re currently third in the Patriot League with a 10-8 record in conference play. 

Boston U’s Impact Players 

  • Brooklyn native Miles Brewster has scored 13 points or more in four of his previous five outings, and he leads Boston U in scoring (10.4) and assists (3.2).   
  • Sophomore forward Otto Landrum tallied 14 points in the road win over Bucknell, and he leads the Terriers in rebounding (5.8), while scoring 8.5 ppg.

Navy vs Boston U Trends

  • NAV is 12-15-2 against the spread, with a 17-12 over/under record
  • The Midshipmen are 5-5 over their last ten games, and they’re 3-12 on the road this season. 
  • BU is 13-17 against the spread, with a 13-17 O/U record
  • The Terriers are 7-3 over their previous ten games, and they’re 8-6 in Boston this season. 

Navy vs Boston U Prediction

Two dark horse contenders for the conference crown will face off here in round two, and it’ll be hard to ignore the hosts momentum coming into this one. Yes, Navy enters on the heels of five straight victories themselves, but with this contest taking place in MA, we should see an energized effort from Boston U. The Terriers were consistent all throughout February, and I like swaying with them on their home floor for this Patriot League matchup.
