Boston College Eagles Basketball 10-year Review
College Sports Fans reviews the Boston College Eagles, one of the NCAA’s top athletic programs
Boston College Basketball
Much like their football program, the Eagles have grown from a losing program to a consistent winner. The team struggled through three straight losing seasons in the late ‘90’s only to seemingly come out of nowhere and finish 27-5 in 2000-01. Since that time, Boston College has won less than 20 games on once thanks in part to a steady stream of talented players including Troy Bell, Craig Smith, and most recently Jared Dudley.

Boston College Basketball Future Outlook
Jared Dudley and Sean Marshall will be gone next season after graduating, but that isn’t the biggest blow that Boston College will suffer. The dismissal of freakishly athletic center Sean Williams will come back to hurt the Eagles significantly. Tyrese Rice emerged as a big time player last season as a sophomore averaging 17.6 points and 5.4 assists, and will have to be the go to man on offense this year. 6’10” forward John Oates will still give the Eagles some size inside which will be necessary in the always tough ACC.
This year’s recruiting class includes a couple of top-100 prospects who are sure to make an impact right away for Boston College. Rakim Sanders out of Rhode Island is the #21 shooting guard in the class of 2007 according to Scout.com, and the Eagles will get stronger inside with the signing of Josh Southern, the #23 center in this year’s class.
