They also signed a 7 footer, Justin Vander Baan, who played on the same AAU team as Langford. Not a big time recruit, but from what I could find he's described as a mobile big man with good hands who needs to get stronger. Sounds like a bit of a project, but I did see a writeup that compared him to Popovich. If he turns out as good as Popovich that would certainly be a good addition.Better weekend for the Hoops team this time as they receive a commitment from Demarr Langford. Langford is not considered much of a shooter (like his brother), but is a strong athlete who can get to the hoop and is considered a very good defender. Best local recruit in a couple decades
Right now the last big recruit BC is in on for 20/21 is Carter Whitt, current a 2021 player, but who like Terrance Clarke has talked about reclassifying into 2020. Whitt was on Campus last week, but have seen nothing written about him since.
It’s too bad that Tabbs is out. Hamilton is looking like a 4 star bust.Nice conference win against Wake to start the season. They have an interesting mix of experience and youth between USC transfer Thornton, senior Popovic, and freshman Heath.
Let's not kid ourselves, they're going nowhere because they're BC, but at least things might be interesting.
I get it on Tabbs, this team would be really good with Tabbs.It’s too bad that Tabbs is out. Hamilton is looking like a 4 star bust.
I just don’t see the b-ball IQ with him. 8 minutes is obviously a small sample so I’m just projecting a bit here but there’s something missing with him that I can’t put my finger on. He won’t be completely useless or anything, and probably will be a solid contributor, so “bust” isn’t a fair label. But I thought we were getting a much better player.I get it on Tabbs, this team would be really good with Tabbs.
What did Hamilton do in the 8 minutes he played before injuring himself that made him look like a bust. I will admit I missed much of the early part of the game, and had to wath the final 30 min or so on my phone on a train. From what I have read in other spots people seemed to be fairly happy with the way he played.
I do think it is possible Hamilton never reaches BC fans expectations, but I suspect he'll play 25 min a night this year, and probably average 8+ points, and will likely average 10+ points a night as an upperclassmen, and yes for some BC fans may consider that a bust.
Not the youth part but the best player from last years team went to the NBA and the 2nd 3rd and 4th best are all currently injured, I don't think any coach would have a chance with the roster they put out last game. Long term it's an indictment that he hasn't had more (or really much of any) team success, short term there's really nothing he can do with the players he has right now.Isn't that even more of an indictment on Christian? Unless he wants to go all Daz on youth and injuries.
We’re in Year 6 of JC and I’m not convinced his full team does better than .500 in a weak ACCNot the youth part but the best player from last years team went to the NBA and the 2nd 3rd and 4th best are all currently injured, I don't think any coach would have a chance with the roster they put out last game.

How many college teams can compete with their 11-14th men combining for 91 minutes of game action. Two walkons had to play 46 minutes.Isn't that even more of an indictment on Christian? Unless he wants to go all Daz on youth and injuries.
Hard to overstate that one. Hard to overstate that impact on this year's team, but at the same time, Christian has been here for at least 5 years and at some point games like tonight take their toll. Jarmond's football hire gives me hope that we can do better in basketball. I follow the BB team more than the FB team to begin with so I'm really hopeful that we can turn things around. We clearly can recruit good players but need to maximize them in their ACC years.If healthy I do think this team would have been better than 500 in conference. Tabbs was an impact player
Just a heart breaker against Pitt
Best game of Mitchell's career. On top of tying career highs in both points and rebounds he made two 3s and went 9-11 from the line (as a 52% ft shooter going into the game) including 2 that iced it in OT. They needed it, as Thornton was 2-12 from the field with several turnovers. Oh, and Christian used his last timeout with over 6 min left in reg, so they had that going for them . . .What an amazing win today
Starting C doesn't make the trip. Backup C gets injured early in second half. 30 minute a game 6th man gets hurt/sick an can't play in the second half. Starting 3 man fouls out late. team misses a couple of FT that could have ended the game late in regulation.
BC falls behind 5 points to start OT, not down the 3rd string Center as well. BC comes back to win it 77-73
Steff Mitchell was amazing 21 pts, 15 boards, 6 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 0 turnovers.
Kamari Williams came off the deep bench to score 8 points, and play solid defense especially in the zone.
Jay Heath was huge
