With Britt and Meeks in the floor, Carolina isn't really that athletic

Still can't see how BC lost to Hartford and others

They're a different team now. Bowman is playing and playing with confidence. Pops is more than a useful part and isn't hurt. Graves was getting promised minutes and hurt the team. They don't lose those games today.

Crazy scene after the game, haven't really seen it before at Conte. 500+ fans, 99% UNC, stayed around for autographs. Most signed.

Boston College looked really good today; program is really improved and I think is one big away from being a tournament team. I was most impressed with how well they ran their offense, in particular their screening. Carolina is a good defensive team and BC had them nailed on switches multiple times. That speaks to really good coaching.

And both from North Carolina.
Yeah Ky was a big time football player in Havelock and committed as a sophomore to Larry Fedora & the UNC football team, but I guess he switched his focus to basketball after that and wound up going out of state.

He was also best friends and played with Gottfried's son on his AAU team. Oops.

Looking good thru the first half against the Hokies. Really just watching to see Bagley and Barros get their numbers retired.

I tried to google to see who else has had their number retired by BC hoops and what the numbers and initials are on the floor, but can only find Sarah Behn.

Michael Adams also has his retired


I don't understand why they did these on the same day instead of giving them their own day to shine

Troy Bell's better be soon

I sense a common theme

Acc tournament is next.

What, if any, impact players do they have coming in next year? And by impact, I don't mean 4 or 5 star recruits, I mean recruits that actually belong in the ACC.

The only formal commitment is from a 6-9 Slovenian forward named Luka Kraljevic is coming to BC in the fall. He's rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN. A couple other touted recruits have visited and have yet to commit anywhere; if one of them signs, I'd consider the recruiting season a success by BC standards. (By "BC standards," I'm acknowledging that we're never going to have the kind of talent pipeline that UNC and Duke have; "slightly better than average for an ACC program" definitely counts as success.
