It's senior night on the Heights as the Eagles men's basketball team hosts Georgia Tech in the home finale. Senior night, you might ask?
Yes, senior night. Well, more like senior slash graduate student night.
Arrive early for our Senior Night Ceremony as we say goodbye to Pete, Deirunas, Salah, John (again), Leslie, Walt, James, Charlie & Nick.— Steve Donahue (@Coach_Donahue) February 29, 2012
Abdo joined the team this season after graduating from Trinity College in Connecticut. He has appeared in five games this season, most recently in BC's 85-56 loss to Wake Forest. His stat line for the year reads like Moonlight Graham's -- 11 minutes, zero points, 0-2 free throws (both in the Holy Cross game) and two Club Trillion entries.
Cahill was added back to the roster in November after starting the last seven games in 2010-11. This season, he has scored 56 points, 35 boards, 11 assists and 12 steals in 24 games this season. He's BC's most accurate 3-point shooter this season, going 15-for-34 (.441 this year).
Visockas played for two years at Lafayette College before injuries cut his days with the Leopards short. He has appeared in six games (six of BC's last eight games, in fact), logging a total of 40 minutes, going 0-6 from the field and 0-3 from three but hitting 3 of 4 from the charity stripe. Visockas has also pulled down 3 boards, made 3 assists and recorded a steal.
Peter Rehnquist joined the team as a walk-on prior to the 2009-10 season and has played in 22 games in his career. This season, Rehnquist has logged just eight minutes, pulled down one board, committed one foul and three trillions.
Even with the losses of Abdo, Cahill, Visockas and Rehnquist next season, BC figures to return a bunch of production:
-- 92.46 percent of 3-pointers made
-- 95.30 percent of total rebounds
-- 96.45 percent of total points
-- 96.62 percent of total minutes
-- 96.83 percent of total field goals made
-- 97.58 percent of total free throws made
Anyhow, I hope you'll join me in thanking Salah, John, Pete and Deirunas for their contributions to the program and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
