Boston College Basketball Schedule: Philadelphia, Sacred Heart, Toledo Added To Home Slate

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

Rams, Pioneers and Rockets added to the home men's basketball schedule.

The Heights is reporting that Philadelphia, Sacred Heart and Toledo have been added to the Eagles home basketball schedule next season. One of those three games will likely be part of the 2K Classic Regional Round with the second regional round game completing BC's 31-game schedule.

Toledo finished the year 15-13 and 10-6 in the MAC West but was ineligible to participate in the MAC Tournament due to APR penalties. The Rockets fell below the mandated cutline on 900 on their four-year scores. Junior guard Rian Pearson lead all scorers with 17.9 points per game, 6.8 rebounds per game and 1.7 assists per game.

Sacred Heart won just nine games in 2012-13, seven of those in NEC play. The Pioneers finished the year on a seven game losing streak, winning just one game in their final 10. Though Sacred Heart did beat Bryant back on January 24, 87-76.

Philadelphia U. is an odd choice as the Rams are a Division II program, though an obvious nod to Donahue's coaching history. Donahue got his collegiate coaching start at the school, serving as Assistant Coach from 1989-90 before moving on to become the assistant at Penn. The Rams finished the year 19-10, falling in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Championship Game to Bloomfield.

My guess is the game against the Rams will be part of the 2K Sports Classic Regional Round. In previous years, the regional hosts have have faced Division II programs in the tournament's regional round, including West Alabama (vs. Alabama) and UDC (vs. Villanova) just last year.

The additions of Toledo, Philadelphia and Sacred Heart leaves the program with just one more slot on the 2013-14 schedule. I can already hear the loser of the roshambo between Holy Cross and Bryant complaining about how BC is ducking them next season.
