Why Boston College can cover

Boston College won three of its final four games during the regular season, including a 15-point upset at then-No. 6 Virginia on Feb. 22. The Eagles also notched road wins at Florida State and Wake Forest, giving them something to build on heading into this tournament. They won twice in Brooklyn last year before losing to Miami on a buzzer beater in the quarterfinals. 

Senior forward Quinten Post, who averages a team-high 15.2 points per game, left last weekend's game with an ankle injury and did not return. He is questionable to play on Tuesday afternoon, but T.J. Bickerstaff stepped up with 15 points and nine rebounds in Post's absence against Georgia Tech. Boston College beat Louisville by 10 points in the lone meeting this season, as Post and Makai Ashton-Langford each reached the 20-point mark. 

Why Louisville can cover

Louisville struggled its way to a 4-27 record this season, but it was quietly playing competitive basketball down the stretch. The Cardinals covered the spread in five of their final seven games, including Saturday's loss to Virginia. Redshirt freshman Mike James tied his career-high with 24 points, but Louisville was ultimately unable to overcome Virginia's 58% shooting night. 

Junior forward JJ Traynor had averaged 12.0 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 8 of 13 from 3-point range in the five games prior to the loss to Virginia. Senior guard El Ellis leads Louisville with 17.7 points, 4.4 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game, while James is adding 10.1 points and 3.3 boards. The Cardinals have won nine of the last 11 meetings between these teams, and Boston College could be in trouble if Post is unable to play.
