It was a pretty solid season opening performance on Saturday afternoon for the Boston College basketball team, stuffing St. Francis - a team that qualified for the NIT last season - by a score of 75-49 at Conte Forum. This highlight reel from the ACC Digital Network features freshman Jerome Robinson's monster slam dunk/and one, which you've probably already seen by now but won't mind reliving.
We also get a good taste of Eli Carter's slick ballhandling skills and good shot. In his competitive debut for the Eagles, Carter dropped 23 points and added 7 rebounds, along with a steal in 27 minutes of play.
Jerome Robinson finished the game with 19 points and 6 boards. Senior Dennis Clifford led BC with 11 rebounds on the day in 25 minutes. Defensively, BC held St. Francis to 27.9% from the field.
BC returns to the Conte Forum hardwood Thursday night against Central Connecticut; until then, we'll have more coverage, discussion, and analysis of the opening win here at BC Interruption.
