G Jay Heath

Heath is a good, young player for the Eagles. Just a sophomore, Heath is priming himself to have a very big career for Boston College.

He is a very smart basketball player that has an opportunity to get even better if he can find a way to consistently shoot the ball from three-point range. Heath will not turn the ball over very often and, despite less than 2 assists per game, he has a fair amount of savvy as a passer in tight situations attacking the rim.

Heath should be a better shooter than he is. He has a smooth, quick stroke that is very hard to defend.

During the 2019-20 season, Heath put up 16 points in one performance against the Cardinals as a freshman.

One of the more underrated aspects of his game is defending. He has a quick hand and is able to pluck the ball from dribbling offensive players or steal cross-court passes.

Once again, there is nothing extraordinarily flashy about Heath. He is just a very fundamentally sound basketball player that does a lot of smart things with the basketball in his hand and never looks uncomfortable.

Look for Heath to be a big factor on Saturday.

The Eagles are not flashy on offense but they are dangerous shooting the three and have a couple of guards that can really shoot it. BC struggles to defend so this may very well be a game where Louisville has to outpace BC in a high scoring affair.
