Wyoming plays the Boston College Eagles after Hunter Maldonado scored 20 points in Wyoming’s 61-56 loss to the Drake Bulldogs. The Eagles are 2-1 on their home court. Boston College is 1-1 in games decided by at least 10 points. The Cowboys are 0-0 on the road. Wyoming is fourth in the MWC scoring 77.4 points per game and is shooting 44.9%.
The tournament’s third-place game will be just the second-ever meeting between the Eagles (3-2) and Cowboys (3-2), who first met during the Fort Myers Tip-Off in 2018. Boston College will have the shortest rest after committing a season-high 20 turnovers in Sunday’s 70-54 loss to a Tarleton State team that began its Division I transition just two years ago.
CJ Penha Jr. (12 points) and Mason Madsen (10) scored in double figures for the Eagles against Tarleton. The team finished at 43.9 percent shooting after scoring just 19 points in the first half. Makai Ashton-Langford (13.4 points per game) and Penha (10.4) have Boston College’s highest scoring averages.
Wyoming trailed Drake 34-18 at intermission but put together a 20-6 run to open the second half before falling short, 61-56. Cowboys coach Jeff Linder hopes his team can learn from Sunday’s opponent. A 6-for-25 shooting performance in the first half just will not cut it, especially against an Atlantic Coast Conference foe.
Hunter Maldonado followed up a 28-point effort against Howard on Friday with 20 against Drake. Maldonado, who is averaging a team-best 17.6 points per game, made 6 of 9 shots from the floor and added five rebounds as he tied a school record by appearing in his 133rd game.
Wyoming will be looking to jump back after losing to Drake last time out, however, Boston College will definitely want to get another win on the board and make it 3-1 on their home court.
