After a two win showing at the ACC Tournament, the Boston College men’s basketball team thoroughly earned a trip to postseason play at the NIT Tournament. With their first postseason bid since Steve Donahue’s inaugural 2010-11 run at the same NIT, the Eagles will be facing an unfamiliar foe in the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, a team that has far more recent NCAA Tournament experience than BC. Jim Christian’s team has a chance to win 20 games for the first time in his tenure and since that same 2010-11 season.
