Coach Donahue, along with the rest of the staff, was the main attraction for me. The system they play fits my playing style, too. Once I had made a connection with the staff and saw where I would fit into the offense, it was an easy decision for me - especially when I finally came to campus and met the guys and saw what the atmosphere on campus was like. Choosing BC was a no-brainer for me.
Thanks to all our fans who came tonight. We really appreciate the support. Stay with this young team - there are great days ahead.
Starting off the game, what we did, not respecting that team - we weren't as focused as we should have been and that caught up with us at the end of the game. We got national recognition, and we didn't handle it well.
Boston College coach Steve Donahue is starting over. He doesn’t have one player left from the Al Skinner era, and that was two seasons ago. Yet, Donahue showed no fear with a team that might struggle to win one ACC game due in large part to its youth, inexperience and lack of star talent. Freshman Ryan Anderson has a shot to become the next hidden gem for the Eagles, but he’s not close to breaking through yet.
Kyle Caudill will arrive in Chestnut Hill in late June. Until that time, the 6-foot-11-inch, 290-pound center from Brea, Calif., will be working on his game while keeping a close eye on his beloved Los Angeles Angels. He may also try to sneak in another music concert.
Lonnie Jackson, a 6-foot-4-inch guard from Valencia, Calif., will join Boston College and Coach Donahue's team this fall. In this Q&A, Jackson gives some insights to his game as he looks forward to arriving on campus on June 23.
Reggie Jackson likely is going to stay in the draft. He'll be a workout wonder and a first-round pick. If he does depart, Steve Donahue will have to completely overhaul his roster in his second season, building the Eagles from the ground up.
Hofstra Men's Basketball Coach Mo Cassara was signed to a new five-year contract through the 2015-16 season, it was announced today by President Stuart Rabinowitz and Director of Athletics Jack Hayes.
Great Names?: I'm a really big fan of Biko Paris. First off, his first name is Biko, presumably named after South African anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko, who made a lot of enormous contributions to the empowerment of black South Africans before giving his life for the cause being brutally beaten to death by South African police, not the least of which was the fact that the opening song on Midnight Marauders (and the song I use as my ringtone) is entitled "Steve Biko (Stir it Up)" even though the song is almost entirely not about Steve Biko except the fact Q-Tip says "Steve Biko" a bunch of times. Actually, check that, this was not a contribution made during Steve Biko's life, but its still important. Also, Biko Paris' last name is Paris, which is not in South Africa.
Evanston, we have a problem. In related news, a #Northwestern and BC second-round game would be in Boston.
