Boston College Eagles Basketball 10-year Review

College Sports Fans reviews the Boston College Eagles, one ofthe 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 inthe late 90s 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 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 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 isthe #21 shooting guard in the class of 2007 according to, and the Eagles will get stronger inside with the signing of Josh Southern, the #23 center in this year's class.
