Villanova Wildcats vs Boston College Eagles 11/25/2020 – The Villanova Wildcats finished as the second-best team in the Big East Conference and they are looking forward to a great season as they will be traveling to meet the Boston College Eagles for opening day. Their game will be held on November 25, Wednesday at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. ESPN will be putting the game live at 7:00 PM Eastern Time and the same feed will be given to SofaScore for the online live stream. According to College Basketball Odds, the Wildcats are the huge favorites to win this game over the Boston College Eagles.
The Villanova Wildcats will be missing Saddiq Bey who was just drafted by the Detroit Pistons but the team is still considered as a national title contender as they have always been. Justin Moore and Collin Gillespie will have to step up now as they are projected to form the team’s backcourt. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will now be the best option in the paint and he will get some help from Jermaine Samuels as both players combined for 21.2 points and 14.2 rebounds last season. Cole Swider is expected to round up the starting lineup and this six-foot-nine forward is expected to come up with better numbers this year.

Boston College Eagles
The Boston College Eagles did not end last season on a good note as the team was on a six-game losing streak before the pandemic hit the country. They finished with a record of 7-13 and tied with the Miami Hurricanes and Virginia Tech Hokies in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The team will have eight seniors back in the game and that is a good plus for them since they can tweak on the misses they had on chemistry last season. Steffon Mitchell should be the best player of this team this season and should provide the team with the needed interior presence. Jay Heath is another player to check for this team and he should gun to be in the NBA after this season.
Players to Watch: J. Heath G (GP 31 MIN 33.3 PTS 13.1 REB 3.4 AST 2.1 STL 1.3 BLK 0.1 TO 2.2 FG% 42.1 FT% 55.1 3PT% 37.6), D.
