Just how good has BC's rebounding been?

As of today, BC's rebounding margin of +12.7 is 3rd-best in Division I, behind only Tulsa (13) and Cincinnati (12.8).  They've out-rebounded their opponents in all eight games so far this season, they average 41.4 per game, and allow their opponents fewer than 29.  Granted, that doesn't mean a whole hell of a lot at this stage in the season, but it has been very nice to see the Eagles crash the boards and be one of the best teams in the nation at it during the first month.  They've been aggressive and I hope to see much more of it.

Going into yesterday's game, Miami was second-best in the ACC in that department, but BC out-rebounded them 46-21 (and collected 23 offensive rebounds).  This is one area of the team in particular with which I have been very impressed so far.
