Notre Dame Basketball: Staff Picks - Boston College

Irish look to make it three in a row against Boston College. Here are OFD’s predictions.

NCAA Basketball: Florida State at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Pat Rick, Editor (7-5) (16-12)

Previous Picks: Florida State 87 - Notre Dame 74 (St. Mary’s L, Oregon W, Arizona W, Villanova W)

Notre Dame Fighting Irish 82 - Boston College Eagles 69

“The Irish will still be coming off the high of taking down Florida State on Saturday, and will give last-place-in-the-ACC Boston College the opportunity to come out firing at home with nothing to lose. I don't think the Eagles will beat Notre Dame, but they have given plenty of very good teams a scare this season and will play a nice game led by Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman. In the end, BONZIE F. COLSON and VJ Beachem will prove too much for Boston College to handle defensively, and the Irish move to 9-5 in ACC play with another road victory.”

“The train is back on the tracks for Notre Dame basketball. The game they played against Florida State was their best of the season. I would expect this to carry over against a less talented Boston College team. BC has lost 9 games in a row and it should be 10 in a row if Notre Dame plays a sound game.”

Notre Dame Fighting Irish 84 - Boston College Eagles 74

“Nobody is stopping Bonzie Colson right now, and Steve Vasturia is coming back to form on offense. It's a road game, but Notre Dame fans travel well, especially to Boston. The Irish will continue to get hot at the right time.”

“The Irish lead comfortably throughout this one. I think it's an easy win to start off a stretch in which Notre Dame has an opportunity to climb back up the ACC standings before the ACC tournament.”

Notre Dame Fighting Irish 84 - Boston College Eagles 70

“Notre Dame has just too much firepower for Boston College and at the moment the Irish are rolling. Boston College might be able to keep it close early because it’s at home, and they’ve played some teams close there. But ultimately the Irish will be too much.

Bonzie Colson is coming off a monster performance over one of the biggest teams in the country in Florida State. Boston College doesn’t nearly possess the length FSU does, so I like Colson to have another big game.

Oh and lastly, keep wearing the gold jerseys!”
