"I really have no clue what to expect," says Valencia graduate Lonnie Jackson, who is preparing for his first Division I basketball season at Boston College. "I can't even imagine myself playing at Duke (one of Boston College's conference opponents) right now. It's crazy to think about myself playing on TV in front of millions of people.
