What to Know

The Navy Midshipmen and the Boston University Terriers are set to clash at 4 p.m. ET March 6 at Alumni Hall in the third round of the Patriot League Conference Tourney. The Midshipmen are out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.

Navy earned some postseason bragging rights after a successful outing this past Thursday. They walked away with a 71-64 victory over the American Eagles. Forward Daniel Deaver and guard John Carter Jr. were among the main playmakers for Navy as the former had 13 points along with eight boards and the latter had 21 points.

Meanwhile, the Loyola-Maryland Greyhounds typically have all the answers at home, but this past Thursday Boston University proved too difficult a challenge. Boston University took down Loyola-Maryland 76-64. The Terriers' guard Javante McCoy did his thing and had 26 points in addition to five rebounds.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Midshipmen are expected to win a tight contest Sunday. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in nine of their 14 home games.

Navy beat Boston University 72-65 when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season. Will Navy repeat their success, or does Boston University have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
