Boston College Basketball: Center Dennis Clifford Will Miss Rest Of Season

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

The BMD is done for the year.

According to the Boston Herald's Tom Layman, Boston College junior center Dennis Clifford will miss the rest of the season.

The Eagles' seven-footer has battled injuries throughout much of his career. A knee injury forced him to miss the first 14 games of the season before he made appearances in conference games against Clemson and Virginia Tech earlier this month. Clifford finishes the year with just six points and nine rebounds in 33 minutes of work.

No word on whether the latest injury is to the same knee or something else. Clifford supposedly tweaked his ankle during warmups of the Syracuse game.

Clifford will apply for a medical redshirt, a hardship waiver granted to athletes who appear in fewer than 30 percent of a team's competitions -- and non after the midpoint of the season -- then suffers a season-ending injury. Had Clifford gone in another game this season, like, say the Syracuse game, he would have not been able to apply for a hardship waiver.

The return of a healthy Clifford would help to balance the roster. With this season going nowhere and Donahue on the hot seat, however, I wonder whether Eagles fans have seen the last of Clifford. Either way, here's to hoping the time off helps get the Eagles' big man back to 100 percent.
