Boston College Basketball: Should Deirunas Visockas Play More?

[Ed. note -- Front Page'd]

Although he didn't score -- as did none of BC's bench -- in last night's stunning BC win over #17 Florida State, 64-60, Deirunas Visockas played a huge role in the upset. He played good defense, had 3 assists and never looked overwhelmed by the moment when he came in with FSU up 23-10.

Before this game, Visockas had played a grand total of one minute the entire season, and when Visockas came in with BC already in a bad stretch, I thought the Don was giving up. I was so wrong. With Visockas in the game, BC went on a 23-3 run, and ended up leading by 1 at the half.

To open the second half, BC fell behind by 2 with Visockas out. When he came back in, BC stretched their lead to 8, and they never relinquished that lead. The rest of the team seemed calm with Viscokas in the game, and a little tentative without him.

I think Visockas will play about eight minutes at Virginia Tech on Sunday. That game is winnable, and if the team plays better with him in, go ahead, put him in. Also, a shout-out to John Cain Carney, who also held his own on the defensive end inside.
