David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Who is the best team in the city of Boston? We'll get closer to an answer Saturday night when Harvard and Boston University clash.

Harvard Crimson (8-1) at Boston University Terriers (6-2)

When: Saturday, December 7, 1 PM
Where: Case Gym

This week's Mid-Major Game of the Week is a battle for "Beantown" supremacy as two hot teams who have combined for eight straight wins clash.

Harvard is coming off of a 72-64 win over another crosstown rival, Northeastern, on Wednesday night. The 8-1 Crimson also took the Great Alaskan Shootout title last week with wins over Denver, Green Bay, and TCU.

Wesley Saunders is once again leading the Crimson this year with 15.1 points per game and 6 rebounds.Saunders isn't the only key member though as both Kyle Casey and Steve Moundoue-Missi are both averaging over 10 points per game as well. Feeding this slew of scorers is sophomore Siyani Chambers, who is doling out 5 assists per game and also doing his own fair share of scoring with 9.4 points per match up.

Boston University is now 6-2 and looking to make a serious amount of noise in their first year in the Patriot League. The Terriers also beat Northeastern earlier this season 72-69 and have quality wins over Long Island, UC-Irvine, and Quinnipiac.

A trio of scorers are leading BU this year with Maurice Watson (14.9 ppg), Dom Morris (12.4 ppg), and D.J. Irving (11.8 ppg) all averaging in double-figures. BU is also playing a very tight eight man rotation this year that has proved valuable this far.

Of course we'll have Ben Miraski's HOOPWAR and the Expert's Take on this match up as we get closer to tip off on Saturday night.
