On head coach Steve Addazio's energetic approach: "He's got a lot of energy. I went to a practice, and practice was totally different. It's high tempo. They move around a lot. [Don] Brown coaches the defense and he moves guys around a lot -- pass rushing, drop back passes -- that’s the way I like to play."

Boston College nears completion of 2013-14 non-conference schedule (CollegeBasketballTalk)
Boston College is a team to pay close and serious attention to next season. Donahue finally has a strong core of his own players as next season is his fourth in Chestnut Hill, and had his team playing very well down the stretch of 2012-13. Of course, much of the ACC was watered down last year, but BC went 7-4 in their final 11 games and return a potential first team all-leaguer in Ryan Anderson.
