Boston College vs Wake Forest Game Preview, ACC Tournament


Why Boston College Will Win

The Eagles went on a big run to put away Pitt without a problem in the 66-46 in over Tuesday. They were great defensively, they hit 47% from three, and they put together one of their better performances in a few weeks.

The threes will come through in the second half and Boston College won’t have any answers.
