BC finds itself in the same position it was in when it faced North Carolina last season: desperate for an ACC win. Losers of seven of their last nine games, the Eagles will host UNC on Friday morning.

For the first time all season, the Eagles shot under 30 percent from the floor and failed to score more than 50, let alone 40, points in their final non-conference game of the year.
After being outscored 21-6 in the second quarter, the Eagles recovered in the latter portion of play, forcing overtime and, ultimately, outlasting UNH.
Right from the get-go, the Pirates put the pressure on BC, both employing the full-court press and jumping out to a 12-point, first-half lead. Seton Hall never let up, even when the game got out of hand.
