Basketball news in July? Basketball news in July. Boston College's opening round opponent in the 2012 Charleston Classic this November will be the Baylor Bears, according to a release by the school.

Boston College will play Baylor in the first game of the 2012 Charleston Classic presented by Foster Grant. The announcement was made by ESPN today.

The Eagles and Bears will play on Thursday, November 15 at 3pm in the TD Arena in Charleston, South Carolina. The game will be shown on ESPNU.

Baylor finished the 2011-12 season with a 30-8 record, including a 12-6 mark in the Big 12. The Bears made it to the Big 12 Tournament Championship game and then advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament before losing to eventual national champion Kentucky.

The Bears should prove a tough out for Steve Donahue and the Eagles, though they do lose four of the top scores from last season's Elite Eight squad. Forwards Perry Jones III, Quincy Acy and Quincy Miller were all selected in this year's NBA Draft while Anthony Jones graduates. Boston College will, however, go up against former guard Brady Heslip when the Eagles and Bears kick off the Charleston Classic. Irony, or something.

Following that game, the Eagles will either face a Colorado team coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance or a Dayton squad that won 20+ games and earned a #2 seed to last year's NIT. With St. John's, Auburn, Murray State and Charleston on the other side of the bracket, it seems that BC got the tougher draw in this year's holiday tournament.
