Nip 'n Tuck

By David Scott - November 29, 2006

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - It’s been pretty much what you’d expect from two teams who don’t see each other often. The game has been an FX production, strictly Nip ‘n Tuck, and at the under-4:00 timeout, BC leads 21-18.

Michigan State has found success in the paint against BC’s defense, as its big men are highly skilled in the post. BC continues to struggle form 3-point land.

Jared Dudley is pacing BC with 11 points and Morgan leads MSU with seven.

. . . Izzo came back with Ibok mid-way through the first half, unconcerned with the sophomore’s two early fouls, but then sat him again, trying to steal some minutes for the Nigerian.

. . . Jared Dudley hit a corner three with under 10 left to give BC a 13-9 lead, and then showed some emotion in trying to energize the Conte crowd.

. . . Tyrese Rice picked up his second personal foul with 10:43 left in the first half. Skinner, thin at back-up for his point guard, left Rice in the game briefly, then took him out 15 seconds later, and replaced him with Marshall.

Rice, who was singled out by Dudley and Marshall as needing to be more of a leader, had a wonderful baseline drive to give BC its first lead of the game at 10-8.

. . . BC’s half-court trap has been presenting some problems for Michigan State.

. . . Still some empty seats in the Conte Forum, but it’s near capacity (8,606)
