Six major-conference sleepers for March
Boston College: If there are prerequisites for an NCAA Tournament run, they include veteran perimeter players, quality 3-point shooting, a go-to scorer, and solid rebounding inside. Boston College seems to have all of these qualifications.
Tyrese Rice not only is knocking down the 3, but he also is averaging over six assists a game in just his second season. While he is the lone true ball-handler on the squad, the Eagles' "tight-flex" offense does not have the need for over-dribbling, and therefore their turnover numbers can remain low.
