The Eagles then return home to host Hofstra on Thursday before the big one: a matchup with #16 Notre Dame on Sunday afternoon in Conte.
Last year, BC beat Holy Cross 77-58 to extend their winning streak over the Crusaders to 10 games, giving BC a 21-9 lead in the all-time series. The Cross is looking pretty sad at the moment - they lost their season opener to Yale, 65-63, and lost an exhibition game to Assumption (!!!?! are they even D1???!!) 67-54.
Hofstra should also theoretically be a win for BC. The Flying Dutchwomen went 5-25 last year and brought up the rear in the always-powerful Colonial Athletic Association. Hofstra dropped their season opener to Iona, 61-57.
Notre Dame will be a major test for this young team. They are off to a great start, having downed #25 LSU 62-53 in Baton Rouge last week. Last year, ND crushed BC 88-58 in South Bend. If BC can be competitive in this game, it will be a great sign for Coach Crawley and the team. If the Eagles pull the upset, expect a good number of votes in the next Top 25 poll.
