Move over, Joe Trapani.

Junior guard Olivier Hanlan's 25 points in the win over Georgia Tech moves him into 17th place on the school's all-time leading scorers list. He now has 1,402 in his BC career and has a few former Eagle greats in his sights.

1. Troy Bell, G, 1999-03 -- 2,632 pts.
2. Craig Smith, F, 2002-06 -- 2,349
3. Dana Barros, G, 1985-89 -- 2,342
4. Bill Curley, F, 1990-94 -- 2,102
5. Tyrese Rice, G, 2005-09 -- 2,099
6. Jared Dudley, F, 2003-07 -- 2,071
7. Danya Abrams, F, 1993-97 -- 2,053
8. Bob Carrington, F, 1972-76 -- 1,849
9. John Austin, F, 1963-66 -- 1,845
10. Jay Murphy, F/C, 1980-84 -- 1,795
11. Ernie Cobb, G, 1975-79 -- 1,760
12. Michael Adams, G, 1981-85 -- 1,650 
13. John Bagley, G, 1979-82 -- 1,629
14. Howard Eisley, G, 1990-94 -- 1,628
15. Sean Marshall, G, 2003-07 -- 1,491
16. Terry Driscoll, C, 1966-69 -- 1,426
17. Olivier Hanlan, G, 2012-15 -- 1,402
18. Joe Trapani, F, 2008-11 -- 1,383
19. Roger McCready, F, 1982-86 -- 1,365
20. Malcolm Huckaby, G, 1990-94 -- 1,316

At his current 16.3 points per game clip, assuming just one ACC Tournament game and no postseason tournament, Hanlan is on pace to finish the year with an additional 211 points. That would move him past Terry Driscoll and Sean Marshall for 15th all-time. Should BC find a way to extend its season beyond Tuesday in Greensboro, finishing his junior year in 12th is very much on the table.

Hanlan likely isn't going to catch Bell, Smith or Barros to crack the school's top three. However, should he return for his senior season, a top four finish isn't out of the question—which is sort of crazy considering the state of Boston College basketball over the last few years (and zero career postseason tournament games).
