The Eagles need a game to turn things around and fast. So BC will certainly welcome the winless Bryant Bulldogs to Conte Forum today. Bryant is an upstart Division I basketball team from Smithfield, Rhode Island. The Bulldogs are led by former Boston College player (1980-1984) and assistant coach Tim O'Shea. In Bryant's first full season as a Division I team, they went 8-24. Now a member of the Northeast Conference, Bryant is winless in its first ten games (including two losses in the NEC). Bryant is averaging only 54.7 points per game, good for 342nd nationally (out of 347 teams in Division I).
