The 'Canes look to break a to game conference road losing streak tonight at Boston College (9PM EST RSN).

BC (0-4 in the ACC) is led by G Eli Carter, a Rutgers transfer.

UM needs better play from PG Angel Rodriguez and more aggression from Davon Reed, Tonye Jekiri, and Sheldon McClellan, to get back to their winning ways.

Look for the 'Canes to come out sharp, and get back on track.
