Boston College Eagles Basketball 10-year Review

College Sports Fans reviewsthe Boston College Eagles, one ofthe NCAA’s top athletic programs

Boston College Basketball

Much liketheir football program,the Eagles have grown from a losing program to a consistent winner.the team struggledthroughthree straight losing seasons inthe late ‘90’s only to seemingly come out of nowhere and finish 27-5 in 2000-01. Sincethat time, Boston College has won lessthan 20 games on oncethanks 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, butthat isn’tthe biggest blowthat Boston College will suffer.the dismissal of freakishly athletic center Sean Williams will come back to hurtthe 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 bethe go to man on offensethis year. 6’10” forward John Oates will still givethe Eagles some size inside which will be necessary inthe 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 isthe #21 shooting guard inthe class of 2007 according to Scout.com, andthe Eagles will get stronger inside withthe signing of Josh Southern,the #23 center inthis year’s class.
