What to know:
- Upon first look you may wonder why a team that is only 22-11 snagged a #7 seed, but these Eagles earned it by being giant kllers. The Boston College Eagles have had a knack for rising to the occassion and beating the best. They've tallied wins in Chapel Hill versus the UNC Tar Heels and at home on the Duke Blue Devils.
- These Eagles can fill the box score from long range, having five different players that shoot over 33 percent from three point land.
- Boston College has made it to the Sweet 16 in four of the last six seasons.
Projected Performance: The Eagles got a tough card when they drew the Pac 10 Champions, USC Trojans. If they can squeak by the Trojans they will face a tough and tournament ready Michigan State Spartans. A darkhorse to make the Sweet 16 but don't say we didn't warn you.
