Boston College Men's Basketball Wins Exhibition Over AIC 70-66

(Front Pag'd -- Edit.)

The score won't make this season look promising, but it really doesn't show that the game was really never that close.

Great debuts for Dennis Clifford, who was 8-9 shooting and had 17 points. Patrick Heckmann was impressive too, as he had 16 points, but he made a few bad decisions on a few turnovers. Matt Humphrey and Ryan Anderson showed flashes, but they were way too inconsistent. The point guard spot will be a major issue leading up to Nov. 14 against UNH, as neither Moton and Daniels played well.  John Cahill, however, played well, and was 3-3 from 3 point land. KC Cauldill was decent, but he looked a little slow.

As for the team, they had some points where they looked like an ACC Top 5 team, and some like a team filled with freshman. After AIC's D.J. Gutridge made a jumper to cut the BC lead to 1, BC scored 7 straight, higlighted by 2 dunks by Clifford (who is amazingly fast for a center, by the way). BC then went on a 13-2 run to go up 25-13, and went into the half up 33-21.

The second half, however, was a different story. AIC cut the BC lead to 5 with 10:20 at 52-47. Donahue's team went out and immediatly responded, however, by scoring 6 straight and they led 68-58 with 2:51. Donahue sent in the benchwarmers, and AIC went on a 8-2 run to close the game.

Overall, I thought BC showed many flashes into the future and played pretty well. At times, this group looked like the next great BC team, and at times they were chasing AIC. I think this is a good note to end on heading into November 14 against UNH.
