Jerome Robinson is about to re-enact Olivier Hanlan's career with BC. Good player who has zero help. Bowman is the only guy who has a chance to be any kind of consistent help. I'm convinced AJ Turner will always be an enigma.Yeah this is where we need a win to show progress. Not happy.
Hard to figure out? These kids are terrible. Jerome Robinson is the only kid with any discernible talent. The front court is a joke and the rest of the team is filled with ACC wannabes or talentless 5th year transfers. This program has somehow managed to be a bigger shitshow than the Dazaster.Really not good. Hard to figure out what's going on right now. They're young but losing games they absolutely shouldn't be losing.
Won't happen. That's why as bad as it is with with Football they won two conference games this year and been in a bowl 3 out of 4 years and important for considerations like this.How long befjre the ACC has talks of kicking BC out because it is elically bad right now?
Mike ... I seem to recall that Christian has a rep for developing guards. I will look for the article but with Robinson and Bowman so far so good.Christian and his staff are doing a remarkable job developing Bowman. He is so much better than he as 2 months ago. He will play in the NBA and it is just going to be a question of when ,
Honestly give Christian a lot of credit overall for keeping the team together and their heads in the game. They are what we hoped the would be a young developing team.
Really nice to get that stupid streak off their back, They are not going to win a ton of games in conference, but they are going to scare teams a good bit. They are explosive, if thin.
Tava was very impressive passing the ball today and I think Turner is becoming a very nice player. I agree there's no one at the level of Robinson and Bowman but I think Pops and Turner have a ton of potential.I've been heavily-critical of Christian, and some of the losses this year will be forever unforgivable, but they're starting to really show something. Great win today. Just need someone in the frontcourt to emerge (and not sure that guy is on the roster).
To be clear, I mean low post player. Tava had a nice game for sure but I'm looking for a 6'9+ impact big, particularly on the defensive end. Popovic looks like he'll be serviceable out there for 4 years. Would like to see another more "bouncy" frontcourt player next to him.Tava was very impressive passing the ball today and I think Turner is becoming a very nice player.

Really funny to imagine BC has a strong backcourt made up of to NC guys.

Don't get me wrong. There are some real problems but given their success in other non-revenue sports (i.e., Men's and Women's soccer, one win away from Omaha) the case just isn't there.
http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/article114176883.htmln the week following Boston College’s stunning upset of N.C. State – the Eagles’ first ACC win in football or men’s basketball since the 2015 ACC tournament – normality was quickly restored when Boston College lost by a mere 45 to Louisville, which dropped the Eagles to 1-5 in the ACC.
With another long season looming in basketball, with potentially only Georgia Tech and Rutgers worse among Power 5 teams, it’s time for the ACC to start asking some difficult questions about Boston College. Only a decade after BC joined the ACC, something’s gone horribly wrong. And there’s every reason to believe it’s not going to get any better soon.
Boston College was never a perfect fit for the ACC outside of academics, even if it did extend John Swofford’s fabled footprint into New England, but at least when it joined the football and basketball programs were both competitive and relevant, more than up to ACC standards. The football program played in back-to-back ACC title games. The basketball team had a winning ACC record in four of its first six seasons in the league, playing for the title in 2006. Now they’re both completely overwhelmed, an anchor on the rest of the conference’s ambitions.

Yeah Bowman is legit.BC follows up a terrible first half against Duke with a strong second half. Cut a 25 point deficit down to 7 and had chances to cut even closer.
Duke could not keep Bowman away from the basket.
Without a doubt. Guy is an excellent all around player. I think folks forget that he was a legit top 150 recruit.Bowman and Robinson are getting all the press but AJ Turner's emergence is huge for this program. We really are a decent big away from contending for postseason play next year. Those 3 guys are legit.
